It’s a whirlwind adventure across Spain, Italy and France. Sounds glamourous or at least fun, doesn’t it? Not so much. With 8 flights in 7 days there’s not a whole lot of time to take in the scenery and culture. But for Winexpert's ace winemakers, Danielle and Tara, it’s a chance to get up close and personal with our juice suppliers to see and talk about this year’s harvest.
Every couple of years Winexpert's winemakers hop on a plane (or in this case 8) and visit the vineyards where they source the juice to produce the amazing wine kits that you enjoy. This time around they’ve graciously agreed to share their journey as they jet set to old and new suppliers alike. They’ll be reviewing quality standards to ensure the juice that is received meets strict specifications while forging new relationships to secure supply. What’s really exciting though? It’s also the time they get to see what’s up and coming in the world of new plantings and blends, discover new techniques, and discuss climatic factors influencing each region’s harvest. It’s where ideas begin or sometimes end depending on the year and the grapes. No matter what, it’s an integral part of how WInexpert brings their wine kit products to you and ensure the quality and selection you’ve come to expect.
So stay tuned to hear about Danielle and Tara’s European adventure. Should be interesting!
