  1. the real wine is grape in grain, with the intense flavor of bunches ripened in the sun, pollinated by insects, kissed by dew, ripe but not too much, free from fury of pesticides, fungicides, pesticides, pesticides
    a real wine is not a liquid subject to manipulation of various kinds, too many spice, aromas, roots (such as licorice), other fruit, make it a different liqueur and it is no longer wine
    sip wine must immediately send back to the nectars and taste of the grapes of that grape, then it is the best wine served true, genuine, grape juice and nothing else


    1. What is a real wine? That’s a really interesting question. If you would try the wine from the Roman’s time, you would spit it right out of your mouth. And they drank 4 liters per person back then. So is our wine better than theirs?
