Be A Wine Maker With Columbia Crest!

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Columbia Crest. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

I dig wine to the fullest, but this is probably something that you already know-right? 

See My Wine Posts

Every new bottle of wine can become like a new experience.  Sometimes there are some wines that you wish that you could have added a hint of this and a touch of that or left this after taste out all together.  As a girl who loves her wine I love full bodied, bold, red wines that dance all over your palate. 

I'm not all into the notes of this and the bouquet of all of that. I just like good wine!  


I am super excited about the Columbia Crest Crowdsourced Cabernet.  So what all of that means is that you actually get to have a hand in how the new wine is actually made!  You get to vote on if the vines should be irrigated or stressed if the harvest should happen at night and even when the grapes should be crushed. Its so cool because its a whole bunch of people voting and deciding what happens to create the outcome of the finished vino!


...and anybody can join and do it, you do not have to be some wine connoisseur, but if you are thats cool too!  Its like wine went and became a party for all of us to join.  You get to learn more about the wine making process because you have access to information like real wine makers do such as:

  • Weather Analytics
  • Season by season data
  • Time-lapsed camera
