Imagine you’re at a bucolic family vineyard in Napa Valley. The owner is guiding you down the rows on a sunny day, explaining each choice she made to help her father’s vines produce world-class grapes.

She informs you that if you want to buy a bottle, you will need to do so on an iPad next to the main road.
