Very serious is wine sometimes

The terms ‘terroir’, and ‘handcrafted’ are used a lot in the winemaking world, and seem to invoke a certain seriousness.   I don’t really know why, but the later (handcrafted) seems to really rub me up the wrong way when I see it proclaimed on wine bottles.  Wine to me is not (hand) chiselled out of wood or formed by bending, or twisting steel, but simply grown.  

For us at FIASCO it’s not always about how the wine is made, but what we get out of it.  Most importantly, FIASCO represents us (those that know us will know what I mean 🙂 )
