Wine Maker’s Log

Because the wine making process takes time and there are so many variables that influence the final product, keeping an accurate and detailed account of the wine making process is key. If the batch turns out to be off the mark in any way, the log will prove extremely useful in trying to determine what went wrong. And if you hit the mark for an award winning cabernet, you’ll be able to use your notes to recreate it time and again.

Print out the log below and fill it out as you go. Good luck and salute!
