What affect does price point have on wine? Winemaking, according to Stuckey, is based largely on the environment.
“Mother nature is a nice person … but she does not play fair,” he said. “Every year is a different vintage, every vineyard has a different exposition and gives a different amount of fruit, of higher or lower quality, and those vineyards end up costing differently. All those things come into play.”
But now is better than ever to get into the world of wine, Stuckey says, because there are a many inexpensive yet delicious wines out on the market.
