3 - Wine Terms - Bubbly Sweetness

1. Sec or Dry: 1.7-3.5% RS (residual sugar) perceptibly sweet despite the name.

2. Extra Dry: 1.2-1.7% RS still slightly sweet regardless of the description and above the sweetness threshold of most people of 1%

3. Brut: 0-1.2% RS maybe a touch of of sweet at the upper end, if you want more dryness, look for Extra Brut or Brut Nature which is bone dry.

Geek Zone: if you want a "sweet" wine, look for Demi-Sec or Doux , great to pour over your desserts.

2 - Quotes from Me:

1. "It takes a lot of beer to make fine wine." ~ The Zen Winemaker (not an original, but used frequently)

2. "There is something magical about walking through a vineyard at 2 in the morning watching your fruit being picked by hand." ~ The Zen Winemaker

Note : this year we are planning "field trips" for anyone who is interested in watching our fruit being picked and participating in crush - details to follow.

1 - Question to ponder:

What are 3 things that you worry about that are completely out of your control?

Now please explain to me how worrying can possible help. If it can't help, then be reasonable and just stop it and save a whole lot of stress in your life.

~~ Notice ~~

We are becoming very low on some of our most popular wines, what do you think you should do about this opportunity?

Something to ponder:

If you shared this newsletter with 2 people, who then each share with two people, how many times would this need to be done to reach every human on earth? Answer
