Your preference for certain wines is no different than your preference for certain foods - it's personal!

Ferment Nation | Wine is Weird

Trying to explain wines can lead to some weird words, but hardly any grape generates as much weirdness as Norton, Missouri's official state grape.

Ferment Nation | Wine is Physical

What are the physical properties of wine that turn a liquid into a complex variety of aromas and flavors? How does a winemaker influence the creation and development of these chemical compounds? Doug Frost explains. KCPT, Kansas City, Public Television 19

Ferment Nation | Wine is Entertainment

Wine shouldn't take itself so seriously; wine is a drink and most people drink merely to have fun.

Ferment Nation | Wine is Communication

Ferment Nation | Wine is Water

Turning water into wine isn’t merely a Biblical story; it’s the work of winemakers. Water is crucial to healthy grape growing, a necessity in clean and sterile wineries, and beneficial to wine drinkers who want to remain hale and hearty.
