records the library of wines
We are small. Our hands, our feet, our minds are in the wine. We make wine from vineyards that are distinguished sometimes by being ignored. Our wine often does not resemble other wines, but we are not renegades. We are students. Our projects are not always experiments-- sometimes we know what we are doing-- but they are always acts of emulation, looking up at the work of others we admire.

Thus, "scholium," from the Greek <<scholion>>, which shares the same root as "school, scholarship." It signifies a modest project, not a preeminent one, undertaken for the sake of learning, understanding– hence a commentary, an essay, a study.

But no matter how much we learn, no matter how interesting our studies, if the wines do not bring pleasure, they are worthless.

Winter. The winery is quiet. All of the wines are in barrel, put to bed for the winter. A few precocious wines beg for our attention and we consider bottling them, soon, in the new year. For now, we rest, regroup, study. Learning is everything.
