Reviews - What do customers think about Adventurous Wine Architecture?
Winw itsef is an adventure Feb 10, 2007
The worldwide selection of good wines to-day is so varied and good-tasting that choosing among wines you never met before is like an adventure. Unfortunately many a wineyard owner is courageus enough to make wine which is of a different elk but everything else connected to these new wines is still wearing yesterday's suits and skirts. Why is that? Whatever the answer to that question is, the plain fact is that only a few chais or bodegas taste like the wine made inside. Books like this are good in making people understand what relation there is between the wine and the way its home looks.
