Meet Legendary Wine Judge Dick Peterson
3 Minute Wine History Lesson
Wine Legend With History Making Inventions
You could share a glass of wine with Dick Peterson and hear a story. But it wouldn’t be near enough wine to learn about the history making changes that Dick helped pioneer in the wine industry. You better get a bottle or two…..
Here are a few:
- The original designer of the steel barrel pallet, which allows wine barrels to be handled mechanically instead of by hand.
- Invented many wine techniques still in use today, such as ‘no topping, bung-and-roll,’ a practice for barrel aging red wines.
- Created many successful new wines, including Lancers Vinho Branco in Portugal, the J. Wile line of varietal wines, Seagram’s first wine cooler, and all the original Monterey Vineyard and Taylor California Cellars varietal and generic table and sparkling wines.
