Even in this modern age, some winemakers choose to work their vineyards with horses. Horses can reach into places tractors can't, they can navigate steeper slopes, their feet don't pack down the soil like tractor tires do and they even leave fertilizer in their wake! Not to mention they make for good company out in the field.

Riesling has been embraced of late by trendsetting wine professionals, but its high regard is nothing new. In the late 19th century the reputation of Rieslings from the Mosel and Rhine rivaled that of Bordeaux and Champagne. Yet, "I don't drink sweet wine," is often a reaction to any mention of the grape. Not all Riesling is sweet. You say you like crisp, dry white wine with notes of minerals and citrus? You're describing Riesling. Even some off-dry Rieslings have so much acidity to balance out the sugar, all you notice is how GOOD they are, not that they're sweet. Plus, it's not a sign of poor taste or novice palate to enjoy sweet wine! I mean, who doesn't love lemonade?

Oh Merlot, maligned by some (like Paul Giamatti's character Miles in the movie Sideways), loved by others (perhaps too much, making it a victim of its own success). From Carlo Rossi to Miles's beloved Cheval Blanc (oh, the irony) Merlot stars in a wide range of roles, both high brow and low. We like to think of ours as the hidden gems of the bunch (pun intended).
