Job Description for Winemaker

Winemakers, also known as "enologists," are responsible for the oversight of producing wine at all stages, from selection of grapes for harvesting to the final transfer of products to bottling or storage for aging. Winemakers use a scientific approach to determine acidity, sweetness, sulfur, and sulfite levels within a wine which equate to its overall quality and "drinkability" for consumers. Winemakers require extensive training to ensure their judgement of grapes' quality, as well as top-value handling and care.
