"And Noah began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard." ---Genesis 9:20
There you are, its official! Interest in wine goes back a long way!
Despite his close connection to things ethereal, we’re sure Noah would have benefitted from connection to the World Wide Web!
This section of our website is directed at the “wine-curious” amongst us, and hopes to cover most of the wine topics that might crop up in debate or in your own mind as you reflect on one of the world’s great conversation pieces. As this section of our web site grows and evolves, we’d be proud if you considered it a “first port of call” in your thirst for knowledge of the fascinating world of wine; perhaps a source of quiz questions among in your social circle, and perhaps even a arbiter of light-hearted wine disputes!
While by no means exhaustive in its scope, we’ve identified some of the “Most frequently asked” questions of visitors to our cellar doors.
These range from visitors just wanting to know “How do you make wine?” and “How does the wine judging system work” through to more complex questions around wines and health or the principles and process governing organic wine.
To answer these kinds of question, we’ve resisted the temptation to reinvent the wheel; but instead have scoured the internet horizon to identify links that cover the topic in ways that we think will interest the non-professional wine curious person.
Our “Want to know more about wine” series includes a number of topics;
“How is wine made?”
“How is wine judged?”
“Is wine good for you?”
“Getting the most out of my cellar door visit”
“The simple science of wine tasting”
“Whether, and how, to cellar my wine”
“What is ‘organic’ wine?”
