To get the most out of each grape variety, you need to understand the best techniques and approaches for that grape. By better understanding a specific grape’s strengths and weaknesses, you can make better wine. Join WineMaker Contributing Writer Tim Patterson, author of dozens of feature stories about different popular grape varietals for the magazine, as he explores strategies and techniques to get the most from your grape varieties.
Tim Patterson was told by a very wise graduate school advisor to write about his vices. As a result Tim has ended up focusing his freelance writing career over the last three decades on wine and spirits from his Berkeley, California home. He frequently writes about wine varietals as a Contributing Writer for WineMaker. He has also collaborated on a book about the history of a winery in the Livermore Valley in California. He is an active home winemaker, specializing in aromatic whites such as Gewürztraminer and Viognier. You can order the recordings as Tim continues to follow his vices leading seminars on “Winemaking by Varietal” and “Making Aromatic White Wines”.
