Winemaking: What If?

There are other things the first California wine makers never dreamed of... filtering machines, which gently remove from the wines the sediments which were once thought essential in the bottom of any good bottle
— M.F.K Fisher, Wine in California, 1962

Instead, as the wine industry became big business in the past 40 years, winemaking craft evolved, being led in part by 3rd party (non vineyard or winery) industrial additive suppliers, and wine critics ready to trumpet the new "clean and clear" style.

Part of SFMOMA's 2011 Exhibit, "How Wine Became Modern", included a display of additives.
