Did You Know?... About Winegrowers

It may not figure into our every day wine buying habits, but it's good to remember that not all winemakers grow their crops themselves. There is a long tradition of winemakers who leave that to skilled farmers, and focus their efforts on the crafting of the wine. For the most part, it doesn't mean much, but if you read your labels closely, sometimes you can find wines from two different winemakers made from grapes sourced from the same vineyard. This is a great chance to compare the natural tendencies of the grape and the terrior of the vineyard to the methods of different winemakers.
