For me, finding the small unique, and even obscure winery is part of the fun of drinking wine. The passion of the people creating these wines shines through and invites you to sip their wine and discover what they love about winemaking. To help these wineries succeed in producing their craft wine and get their product marketed is where the Craft Wine Association comes into play.
Craft Wine Association
The Craft Wine Association celebrates American small-production wineries that put their heart and soul into making these wines. Their goal is to raise awareness of the craft of making wine. They choose the word craft because it is the marriage between art and science. The winery participants are family-owned, and each represents the place their grapes grow. Many of these wineries are within a few miles of a large city.
