This week's question:

What is Chaptalization?

It is the shaving method a barrel cooper uses to refinish old wine barrels.
It is the technique of adding sugar to fermented grape juice to increase the alcohol content in wine.
It is the weeding process done in the vineyard to reduce pest that are harmful to the vines.

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
