Click now, sip later with crowdsourced wines This image of a vineyard was taken from Columbia Crest’s CrowdsourcedCabernet.com. Cameras show the grapes that “virtual winemakers” will be able to control. A few wineries are experimenting with using social media to crowdsource suggestions on how to make their wines.
Wine In India Two wineries — Columbia Crest in Washington and La Crema in California — recently launched crowdsourced wine projects in which online voters get to decide everything from the types of grapes used to produce the wine to the design of the label on the bottle. Being a home winemaker just got a lot less messy.
India Wines “It’s groundbreaking for our industry,” says Caroline Shaw, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of Jackson Family Wines, parent of La Crema. She sees the project as “lifting that curtain that I think gets people so intimidated when they see a wine list.” In the La Crema project, which launched last month, voters already have decided to make pinot noir, which beat out chardonnay by a mere 78 votes, and have further picked the Russian River appellation as a source of the grapes. Within three weeks of launch, the effort had attracted nearly 15,000 registered visitors and about 135,000 page views.

In 1968, the experts told them it was too hot in Temecula to grow grapes. The Cilurzos planted anyway.

mong Italy's mind-boggling array, iconic wines such as chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco and Brunello di Montalcino reign supreme in American consumer awareness.
Wine Business In India Thanks to importer Kermit Lynch and some astute buying by the PLCB, commonwealth consumers have an opportunity to discover Ligurian wines through Punta Crena, one of the region's best and most traditional producers.

Wines From India Liguria's breathtaking, yet rugged, coastal landscape provides a clue to its wines' relative obscurity. The area lies just east of the French Riviera and immediately south of Italy's famed Piedmont grape-growing region. It stretches in a narrow half moon all the way past Genoa and Portofino to Tuscany's coastal area in the south.
You need neither your taste buds nor an app to ascertain which are the higher-quality vineyards along the steep slopes of Germany's Mosel river valley. A little church history and a topographical map will do.
Free Wine Testing For centuries, the more costly wines have come from vineyards high up these slopes, not by and large from those closer to the river itself.
Wine Business In India The vineyard names often indicate the grapes' destinies; the loftier up the ecclesiastical or social scale, the higher the vineyard and the better the wine. At the estate of Maximin Grunhaus, for instance, grapes from the low-lying vineyard Bruderberg ("the monks' hill") made everyday wine, while grapes from the higher-up vineyards of Herrenberg ("the choirmasters' hill") or the Abtsberg ("the abbot's hill") made superior wine. They still do.
