ENOLOGISTS: THE BOTTLED GENIE
What makes some wine be so special? Is it the soil, stock or mankind? Although the terroir is an indispensable element for the beverage’s identity and the vine variety defines the work to be done, enologists are the ones to outline that journey that began back in the land.
Their functions and decisions have an impact in and out of the winery. That is why they are highly specialized. Enologists are to be experts in subjects related to the wine making process and pay attention to its technical-sanitary conditions. Likewise, they are tasked with designing wineries, choosing machinery and equipment, as well as marketing, trading and distributing.
However, before mastering the technique, they are also defined by the passion for every development in wineries, casks, bottles.
