Wine is the result of both nature and human intervention. It is inseparably tied to its terroir, and subject to the unpredictability of the elements. Yet since time immemorial it has been experienced and enjoyed as a creation of man, touched as it must be by human hands both on the vines and in the cellar.
The winemaker is, therefore, scientist and artist at the same time. The winemaking process is chemically the same, whether one makes an age-worthy wine or a vin nouveau.
