So Much to Discover

Here we find the oddballs and outcasts, the grapes that are so particular that you can only find them in this or that corner of the world. These are grapes that often get the cold shoulder from even knowledgeable wine drinkers, and not because they don't produce good wines. These grapes and the wines they produce are generally ignored because they are not easy to understand, and are often produced in ways that are designed to offer pleasure at the table rather than impress at some grand tasting event. 

These wines aren't always big, and are rarely pointy, but they represent the diversity and patrimony of an entire industry. They are so important on so many levels that we must pay more attention to them. We have to save them, to help the wineries that are trying to stave off their extinction. These are wines that have no equal and no comparison. They are authentic, unique, and a part of the fabric of a culture that is receding out of view. They represent the true source of wine for so many, and today I'd like to take a look at a few.
