The Beauty of Small Batch Winemaking

3/23/2016

You don’t need to be a sommelier or a wine aficionado to understand the difference between a great bottle of wine produced by a small boutique winery verses a mass produced wine. A great glass of wine starts with the grape, and is crafted in every step of the winemaking process. Here at Gold Medal Wine Club virtually all of the wines featured in our six series have garnered top medals from major wine competitions or have been highly rated by national wine publications. Unlike other wine clubs we never feature bulk wines, private labels, or close outs. What makes small batch winemakers better than the mass producers that flood your grocery store shelves? Take a look as see the difference yourself.
