Everything that I do is about educating, whether it’s teaching or consulting. We look at the entire world of wine – the business end, the viniculture; viticulture and how everything works – not only how it tastes or smells.

With a chill, this slightly murkish, magenta-hued wine was so refreshing and quaffable.  At only 11.5 % alcohol, I had to stop myself from drinking the entire bottle.   This is another excellent wine from Tiago Sampaio and his Folias de Baco winery in the Douro Valley, Portugal.   Uivo Renegado is an unfined, unfiltered, wild-ferment wine ;a blend of 25 red and white indegenous varieties, hand harvested from 80 year old vines. The whole clusters macerate  3 days, followed by spontaneous fermentation for approximately 3 weeks in 1000L
