Backyard Wineries and Garagistes

Anita Campbell in Small Business Trends:

You’ve heard of garage bands. You’ve also heard of the high tech companies started by “two guys in a garage.”

Well now there are garage wineries. These are small businesses making wine from their homes, without the expensive vineyards.

I can see it now — all the business opportunities popping up around the Garagistes. Selling Garagiste wine could become an interesting niche for wine retailers. It also could make a fun theme for wine-tasting fundraising parties. And, of course, then there’d be a need for an online directory of all the Garagistes so that winemaking supply companies can market to them.

The San Francisco Chronicle has more on this developing industry.
