What exactly is “Vino Lingo”. Simple, wine terms as defined by the winemakers themselves.  These include common and not-so-common winery words, proprietary terms heard only at certain wineries and crazy made-up words that are used on certain situations. Vino Lingo. For several years we have dedicated a section of our website to these ‘magical’ terms and occasionally we put a years worth together for a podcast. Thus, this is Part Five of Vino Lingo. Enjoy!!
