Are you as big of a wine lover as me? If you are then you better sit down because I've got some exciting news for you. La Crema, my personal favorite white wine maker, is launching a Virtual Vintner program - an interactive journey in which you can participate to help create a brand spanking new, unique, community-created wine. And to make things better - as you participate in the creation of this new wine you also get to learn about viticulture and wine making techniques. Participants will weight in on their likes and dislikes all the while making decisions about varietals, appellation, specific vineyard, harvest date and barrel treatment as well as wine name and label design. It's a truly unique opportunity for a behind the scenes look at the wine-making process. The program began this past Monday but don't you worry, you still have plenty of time to join in the fun (and decision making) as the process won't end until the wine release in the Fall of 2015. I'm looking forward to learning more about my drink of choice and later on, in a year or so, tasting the fruits of my labor. Oh yes, this wine we help create will be released and you, as a Virtual Vintner participant, will have the first chance to purchase a wine you can truly call your own. Join La Crema's virtual winemaking community here and enjoy!
