energy follows focus

i was raised on the idea of energy following focus.  i believe that robert mondavi allowed for his focus to change what people think of today as the fourth largest wine producer, california.  robert mondavi was a visionary winemaker, an artist and helped show the world that California had something to offer.  he was constantly pushing the envelope as to what should and could be done in winemaking industry.  his “fume blanc” or Sauvignon Blanc showed California the variety that white wine had to offer and started a trend of producing Sauvignon Blanc.  he wrote in his autobiography a quote that has stuck with me this harvest and probably will for many to come,

“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.”
