Masters of the chemistry and artistry of making great wines
Winemaking is defined as “The production of wine”. The reality is that there is so much more to winemaking than that. A good winemaker is a farmer, chemist, biologist, geologist, artist and business person and spokesperson all rolled up into one package. A winemaker has to be able to know what they want to do with a wine, but have the knowledge and understanding to be able to make adjustments along the way when Mother Nature throws them a curve.
We are proud to introduce you to our world-class team of FFWS winemakers. Combined, our winemakers have over 200 years’ experience making some of the world’s best wine. They’ve studied and made wines all over the world – in Bordeaux, Argentina, New Zealand and all over the United States. They are a highly educated, motivated group of winemakers who revel in the blend of art and science that winemaking represents. As an FFWS member, you’ll hear about all of the different ways our winemakers work beginning in the vineyard all the way to when the wine is released for drinking, to bring to you the best possible wines at every price point.
