What is Open Source? It’s wine from New Jersey @WinemakersCo_Op #OpenSourceChardonnay


Nxopen Source Label-1
“What is open source?” – it’s wine from New Jersey.

Each winery of the Co-Op grows Chardonnay at their respective vineyard sites. Upon harvesting the 2016 crop, each winery transported 1,000lb of Chardonnay grapes to William Heritage Winery, where the grapes were pressed together. The grape juice was divided equally, and the winemakers of each winery fermented and developed the wine in their own respective styles. The result is four unique wines developed from the same single source of grapes.

“Open Source is a play on the same term from the software world,” said Co-Op Executive Director John Cifelli. “With open source software, developers are welcome to modify the source code to create something, sometimes collaboratively. In our case, the wine grapes are the source code, and the winemakers are the developers.”

“Open source” is a trademark of The Winemakers Co-Op Inc. of New Jersey (Serial Number 87797142 / February 14, 2018).


It’s sold out in the places I could find, if anyone knows where I can get a bottle of open source, please post up in the comments.
