“Karen, when talking with winemakers or grape growers, they always say that their vineyard is planted ‘to’ cabernet or ‘to’ zinfandel or whatever. Why do they use ‘to’ instead of ‘with’ or any other term?” – Walter C. (Sebastopol, CA)
Walter, I’ve often wondered that myself. And I admit I don’t know the answer unless perhaps the phrasing is derived from a French expression? WineSpeed readers, can anyone provide insight here?
