me: armed with a liberal arts degree in NOT winemaking. migrant laborer experimenting with learning things beyond institutionalized education, “expanding my palate” & moving pallets.
crushing grapes. stomping grapes. cleaning tanks. punch downs. pump overs. batonnage. delestage. racking. barrels. presses. forklifts. pumps. yeast. trotting the globe in search of fermentations – not just a metabolic process but a way of life.
