When distillers make whisky, a small amount evaporates through the barrels and into the heavens. It’s known as the “angel’s share.” In winemaking, when wine evaporates during the aging process, it’s called product loss. Over the course of three years, a barrel can lose 14% of its wine. For a small, family-owned winery like Miramont Estate, that’s a lot of product loss.
