Winemaking is inherently conservative. Built on generations of repetition, or expensively purchased or created – land, vineyards, wineries, people. With one harvest per year of production, it is not an industry that inspires creativity.
Starting in corners of cellars, we begin small, a few barrels, one or two tanks. We are not oblivious to the overheads that others have given us the opportunity to use, and indeed with time we invest in them too. However, starting small we can afford to dream a little, try things that a bigger producer might not.
