Usually when we talk about wine it involves shipping laws from state to state and how those laws affect wine gifts delivered straight to your home or to a family member of friend.

Given those regulations it is surprising that when it comes to actually making wine, there really are not many rules at all.

To me, that is incredibly surprising on a few levels, but not the least because politiians and teetotalers tend to love to have control over alcohol.  It’s probably only a matter of time!
