35' seems to be out of reach looking at the speeds so far.

So, basically, winemakers use their own grapes, if I've caught it properly.
Are you talking in general, or specifically the Bordeaux area?

I live in wine country. Some winemakers do the whole process themselves from root to bottle, but it’s a big operation to do all that. Small makers will contract out parts of the process; you can hire someone to do pretty much any single stage of it.

Some makers here charge a premium for “Estate grown” wines, rather than wine made with fruit from their back-of-beyonds vineyards, or that they’ve bought in from other growers.
