Jayson at The Wine Vault in Auckland New Zealand posted this video recently and since many people have not seen the inside of a winery it provides a good illustration about the choices available to wine consumers around the world.
The label on the bottle does not really tell the story, nor is wine produced in big industrial factories bad or wine produced in small quantities better because there is more love. They are just different.
The video (no audio) shows one of New Zealand’s largest commercial wineries – it could be anywhere in the world.
The message is, we as consumers of wines from around the world, have choices when it comes to wine, who we buy it from and then share it with.
I think there is merit in getting to know and supporting ”The Little Guys” . Think of it as a wine treasure hunt.
Do you have feelings about industrial wines versus artisan handcrafted wines?
