As I dream about sorting, crushing, fermenting, pressing, aging, branding those juicy grapes into (600 of) my very first bottles of wine, my cheeks flush, my pulse quickens, and my palms begin to sweat. I think it’s clear what’s going on here…
Winemaking, I have a crush on you.
First Crush is a blog about my adventures in commercial winemaking.
I am a young, California-based writer, taking a chance on a couple of vines and throwing myself headfirst into an industry dominated by older, wealthier people. I hope to shake things up and make a place for my brand in the romantic, complex, cutthroat, critical, delicious, magnificent world of wine.
As in all love affairs, I expect there will be some drama, some debate, and some despair, much excitement, and an occasional lack of commitment. But above all–and through it all–I expect this will be a learning experience, so I invite you to follow along, share your thoughts, and maybe even share a bottle at the end.
