The Inside Winemaking Podcast with Jim Duane

This episode covers my recent journey through the creation of a new wine.  A pink wine.  From grapes to finished wine that is almost bottle-ready three months later, this foray into rose has been an exciting new winemaking challenge.  As an experiment I recorded this solo episode while driving home from work.  Because I'm a captive in the car during the recording, it's part harvest chronology and a bit stream of consciousness.  I hope that the winemaking decisions that I grappled with presents thought for others producing rose wines.

As VP of Operations for White Labs in San Diego Neva Parker has extensive experience with the full spectrum of yeast that are cultured and available for the brewing industry.  While most known for their brewing yeast, White Labs also provides yeast and bacterial strains for producers of wine, sake, kombucha, and craft spirits.  Our conversation covers Neva's entry into yeast production, the array of available strains, pitching rates, and the various ways yeast influences flavor, fermentation kinetics, and alcoholic strength.  While Neva's expertise is focused on beer and brewing, there is much that winemakers can learn from this parallel industry that, because of its reliance on yeast, has sought a deep technical understanding of how producers can manage the cultures they provide.
