Vinography Images: Thief in the Cave

Caught in the act. A ‘wine thief’ used to take barrel samples rests in an open bung hole at Anomaly Vineyards in the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley. Winemakers regularly sample wines from barrel to check their evolution and determine whether the wine requires any maintenance as proceeds towards the point of bottling.
