Dear Wine Ladies

What is a wine thief?

Jason, Dallas, Texas

Watch The Wine Ladies TV and our adventure at Kendall-Jackson where we experienced wine thieving first hand!

 

Dear Jason,

It is a “pipette” a slim tube-like product made with glass or food-safe material, about between 12-24 inches long, used to draw a small amount of wine from a cask or other fermentation container.
