What makes a wine good?

I have a friend who is a wine maker. Wine making is her passion and she opened up a winery to turn her passion into the reality of a dream. So I’ve learned just a little bit (just a little bit) about wine making from her.

There is a lot of art mixed with ingredient, science and heart to wine making. It is a process, but it is delicious for every wine connoisseur who tastes the final product. Just the right blend makes something beautiful, tasteful and good to compliment the flavor of your meal.

But first comes the crushing. . .

It takes grapes to make wine. Gorgeous grapes that need to be crushed in order for their boldest flavor to come out.

Is life leaving you crushed?

If it is know that there is a Vine Dresser who is a wine maker who has hand selected you. God deeply favors you. Though you may be in a painful process—just like my friend, the Maker keeps careful watch over you. He will bring new flavor, new aroma, new boldness, new life out of you that you maybe never knew was within you.

Cuddle up and snuggle in. Love and Purity will cover you, wrap you and bless you as the Beloved finishes the good work He has begun in you. The crushing won’t last forever. There is new wine, robust and bold, replacing the old and spilling forth from you.

New Wine...

“See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:19
