Redmans’ Winemaking Points of Difference

Making wine is a universal practice – it’s made in almost every country on the planet. The overarching process for all wine producers looks like this: grow the grapes, ferment the grapes = bottle the magic liquid. But what stands all wineries apart from each other are the idiosyncrasies in each producer’s winemaking practice. At Redman, our points of difference occur at each touch point of the process.
