Wow, the dining options at @Mariners games are utterly amazing. Can't wait for the season to start! 
Thus, if you're into hip packaging and flavors of Brett/lactobacillus, they can utilize a wide range of grapes and produce a similar-tasting wine in a given vintage. It's a weird disassociation of wine from the place where the grapes were grown.
My contention is that many of these wineries (especially US) want you buying a brand, not a specific piece of land, because they're sourcing grapes cheaply/blending whatever/drawing you in to a flavor profile that can be kept consistent without their having actual vineyard land
Enjoyed @Esther_mobley's look at natural wine; think she raises the really crucial question right now, which is why is the conversation so much about vinification and bacterial intervention, not about viticulture? #sommlife
