A visit to the Dragonette, Pence and Spear wineries near Buellton in the Santa Rita Hills AVA of California. Plenty of wind from the Pacific Ocean despite 20 degrees centigrade in the valley on November 10th 2017.
Fermentation videos (Barrel and Steel Tank) at Weingut Karl H. Johner winery in Baden SW Germany, both shot in September 2017. Great winery to visit!
See the new FermentedGrape.com video covering the controversial subject of wine and whether it is good for your health. Also more on the "French Paradox" which covers the low cardiovascular related death rate of the French despite a high fat diet and high smoking rates. The phenomenon is partly thought to be due to their daily red wine consumption with food.
Videos from the Piedmont wine tasting trip including Barolo, Barbaresco, Monforte D'Alba, Dornere and Serralunga D'Alba. Beautiful scenery, amazing wine and food. Visit it!
