Interesting bit on consumer preference for natural cork use in wine enclosures. Is this, perhaps, based almost entirely on aesthetic perception and tradition? Is there a need for education on Stelvin (screw crap) enclosures for certain wines (e.g. quick-turn whites like #SauvBlanc) where cork use may not be needed for ageing and may help lower the bottle cost for consumers? http://bit.ly/1DwexZM

Here is part 6 of Resident Viticulturalist Paul Zellman’s series on sustainable winegrowing in the vineyard and how it produces better wines. In this installment, Paul further discusses vineyard design and development and its affect on wine quality. Of note, is the frequent mistakes that are made when simply replicating concepts from other regions without firm understanding of one’s own. http://bit.ly/1ywIPUU
