Winemakers often end up with excess wine. It might be because of a bumper crop, contracts with farmers, or simply because they haven’t been able to get the wine to market. And so what happens then? Often, these wines will be blended away, sold off for bulk, or in the worst instances, poured down the drain. This is why the Wasted Wine Club was created, taking these wayward wines, curate a new wine in collaboration with a talented winemaker, and make sure none of it goes to waste.
So not technically a story about wine but definitely one about a famous winemaker. Enjoy this inspiring story about Francis Ford Coppola, the iconic director/winemaker and is his grandest project yet.
In this episode of I’ll Drink to That, Sylvain Pataille, owner and winemaker at Domaine Sylvian Pataille, discusses the impact in Burgundy of economic changes over the last century and goes into detail on his own family’s wine domain and their approach to modern winemaking.
