It’s an important question as wine questions go. Not as important in the greater scheme of things, to be sure. But if you are going to stand up and say “This wine is kak, bile of satan, tears of dying goat” you better be able to say why.
I started out trying to be as general as possible, but the post got more and more personal. I think that’s unavoidable.
An interesting comment has been posted, asking if we should consider the ethical side of wine production. Worker treatment, I guess, comes before environmental concerns, but they are both part of this.
It’s something I will consider for future posts.
