Barrel tasting is an exciting experience for wine lovers. It is a behind the scenes look at the winemaker's craft. Barrel tasting is like a backstage pass that allows you to look at the set list before the band takes the stage. But what if the lead singer asked you what you thought? How cool would it be to have a say in the outcome of the performance? Unfortunately, bands and winemakers don't often seek advice from their customers. However, at Boulder Creek Winery, wine club members actually get a say in what goes into the bottle! I've highlighted the process behind this unique opportunity in an article on Palate Press.
