Wonderful pictures, Bertrand, especially the first one. Really shows the joy we have in the wine business. Grazie

Tom Fiorina

A real tour de force wine tasting, Bertrand. And it goes without saying that the photos are particularly illustrative of the people behind these great wines. You can see the pride and dedication in their eyes.



What do you mean by "Gourmand". I'm aware of the meaning of the word outside of this context, but what character are you specifically referring to here with it?

I'm just looking for how you would define the word in reference to wine, since I've never seen it used adjectivally.

Really cool article though. Thanks for sharing.


Alfonso, Tom, Morgan, thanks for your notes;
Gourmand means (in French when tasting a wine - my interpretation) a feeling of pleasure akin to the one we have with a savory food, we chew it and enjoy every second until we swallow it. There's certainly an English word for that.
