Although you may not like to think of it when you raise a glass of your favorite wine, viticulture is a science. Most winery tours do not include the laboratory which is a pity because this one was a real crowd-pleaser.
If you bring your kids to enough wineries, they may, at the grand old age of 14, be ready to give a little speech on why old vines are better than young ones.
Or this kid-view of the wine-pressing (warning, this is an unedited kid video).
