Some have asked David you have a discussion board why a blog?
Well, I guess I can say simply this is a space to express myself personally. On this blog I will try and keep topics mostly about enology, viticulture and a little life and politics along the way. As many of you know I have gone back to school for enology and viticulture. A little unsure of whether I want to start a winery or just grow grapes I will share some of the knowledge I acquire along the way. I will try to keep my post down to once a week so we can have some fresh interesting content. Every once in a while I may go off on something that impresses me or drives me nuts. We will try and keep it fun.
What is it? Summed up it is the science of making wine. i will use this subject matter for everything associated with making the wine from crushing to tasting. We will cover topics from mousiness, TA, corking, enclosures, barrel programs, down to pressure washers. I will try to keep the topics more focused on a consumer level. We will just see where that goes.
Here we will dwell in the science of growing grapes. I will try and emphasis my experience as I begin my vineyard in Northwest Georgia. We will talk about diseases, degree days, pest, trellis systems, pruning, canopy management, some farm talk ranging from equipment to other interesting facts. I will explain the differences between biodynamic and organic vineyards. We might even talk about animal pest and farm dogs and cats. So ride with us as we create foreveryoung vineyards.
Other fun stuff
Well my close friends know that besides making wine i love to cook especially grilling. I will touch on some of my favorite recipes or other places off the beaten path that impress me. We might talk about the Chattanooga Market, A neat meat market in Middle TN, A little politics. I promise to try and keep the politics down. We can always talk about that stuff over at dadeinfo.com So Thank You for enjoying this journey with me. Your comments and questions are welcome.
