From Europe to the Americas, Asia to Continental Africa and far beyond, many ancient vines are once again taking root in their place of birth. Overlooked by commercial interests for decades, if not centuries, they are now primed to re-tell their unique stories. Thanks to advances in the field of vine DNA analysis, researchers now have the stunning ability to genetically identify and locate grapes to specific regions and often localities. It’s these almost forgotten fruits that have captured our imagination, offering as they do an amazing path to rediscovery. We’re talking about NATIVE GRAPES right from their own Backyard !
With the passage of time, sadly countless grapevines have fallen ‘victim to circumstance’. **IT happens. Natural environmental disasters, plagues and infestations all have done untold damage. And with the loss of the vine came the loss of the wine. Yet today, thanks to the grit and determination of small growers and curious winemakers alike, we fortunately have the opportunity to once again enjoy the amazingly diverse cultural taste that many of these lesser known grapes deliver. Celebrating #AgeOldVines #RebornWines – and the way they taste right from their own #PointOfOrigin.
We choose our favourite SOUNDS to accompany us wherever we go. For us, these clips act as an Audio & Visual ‘pumping over’ adding character to the real Juices we discover, thereby creating unique blends of taste distinction. Whoaa!
Of course, one could always contemplate the existence of GRAPES and WINES without MUSIC.
