A living wine (like the person who drinks it) is affected by the passage of time, the tastes of the day, and a thousand other subtle peripheral factors in virtually infinite numbers. We read, hear and listen to a wealth of thoughts from the most scholarly to the most sensitive, the most inspired to the most worldly, and each adds its lustre to the life of a wine. The points of view from behind the scenes are what interest us here. Those from the front lines of Fonroque employees. This familiarity helps to reveal landscapes that have been patiently explored. It offers an irreplaceable understanding of details and the unique flavour that comes from loving the work you do.
