I remember a sad story of my good friend. He was marketing his very own made wine. However, most wine seller were saying, “We never carry local wines”. If we could change our “like-imported” attitude, it would help a lot in uplifting our local wine industry.




  • hello.. where could i buy that seal or cap of the wine bottle? is that aluminum foil?

    • Synergos sells wine caps, aluminum wine caps. I never know where to find locally the aluminum foil type. Most wine makers here buy from abroad. Here is the synergos link (http://synergospackaging.wordpress.com)
