A frequently used slogan in this context and often used on winegrowers' websites is "The quality of the wine is already decided in the vineyard", sometimes with the addition "The measures in the cellar are limited to controlled (non-invasive) inactivity". It is not quite as simple as that, but there is no doubt that it is difficult or even impossible to make up for omissions and mistakes in vineyard management in the cellar.
