Making wine is a centuries old practice. Historians can trace wine making back through the ages to early Mesopotamia; the Egyptians left clues about the wine-making process in ancient hieroglyphic carvings and the Greeks forever immortalized wine with their worship of Dionysus, the god of wine.
Over the years, meticulously tended vineyards, secretive processes and favored labels by aristocratic society have made many wealthy wine-makers; think Kendall-Jackson (Jess Jackson) and Robert Mondavi. But thanks to global commerce, new technology and some really enthusiastic wine consumers, you don’t have to contribute to their bank account anymore.
