Many things can go sideways in the cellar as we are ushering the fermentation along. In most wineries, a surprise visit from brettanomyces to your cellar could be a curse, but in this situation we are celebrating it. The funky wild yeast that is popular in the beer world brings out a signature funk. This signature funk, though, took 5 barrels of Alicante to another level. As a famous painter once said, there are no mistakes, just happy accidents.
Tossed out grape Bubble Yum to have a late lunch of nut butter and blackberry jam sandwiches, with a side of Italian herb crackers ... while wearing your grandmother’s favorite sweater that she handed down to you.
