How To Choose a Top Wine Vintner
The term vintner describes anyone who makes or sells wine, from a beginner making wine at home for their personal consumption to the most highly regarded expert, in charge of everything from growing the grapes to bottling and marketing the final product while working for a large-scale winery.
Given the wide range of UK vintners to choose from, how do you decide which wine to purchase?
