Glossary

Fortified Wine
  - A wine to which a distilled spirit, usually brandy, is added.
Wine Blending
  - The process by which you combine different varietal wines into one supreme wine.
Enotourism
  - Enotourism, oenotourism, wine tourism, or vinitourism refers to tourism whose purpose is or includes the tasting, consumption or purchase of wine, often at or near the source.
Gravity Flow
  - Gravity flow winemaking is a practice that is becoming well recognized by wine makers and vino fanatics. The process in gravity flow (also known as gravity fed) winemaking allows for the wine to stream from winery levels. Unlike traditional one-level cellars, there is no use of pumps or mechanical force, enabling the wine to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin.
Lables 
-The packaging on wine bottles that give specific details about the origin, brand and the product itself.
Sweet Wine
- Wine that has a higher residual sugar content
