The day a bottle of wine is opened is the culmination of years of patience and planning. The work started years ago is part of a process whose fruits won’t be known for some time. It’s a gamble based entirely on hope.
And even then, despite the planning, the strategy, and the hard work, the quality of the final product is entirely out of human hands, at the mercy of what the weather and soil were like during the year.
It’s a gamble based entirely on hope.
The bottle of wine that is opened at your dinner table is more than just the works of a farmer – it is the bottled hope of someone who has staked their entire livelihood on it.
