The nectar of the gods and humankind, wine is linked with effort, reflection and sometimes worry, before playing an integral role at celebrations. The winemaking process requires humility, attention to detail and the ability to call ourselves into question. The process is interspersed with traps and stumbling blocks needing to be overcome. The intelligence of the group, discussion and sharing of opposing opinions optimises final decision-making and its sensory and financial results. The time then comes for everyone to celebrate, for libations, singing and living life to the full.
