There are many factors that contribute to the making of a great wine. From the regional origin of the grapes to the fermentation & ageing conditions of the finished wine, there are a lot of variables and few constants in the world of wine making. If there is one area of consistency that a winemaker must have, it is in the quality of their yeast.
