The wines are sold directly from vineyards and include shopping resources from these winemakers. Here is more from Amazon Wine: “Learn about wine by hearing directly from the winemaker about winemaking techniques, wine tasting notes, vineyard details, and wine pairing suggestions. Become a wine connoisseur of your own right by discovering the best wine for your taste preferences, whether it’s dry wines or sweet wines, and by reading wine reviews by other customers.”
