Wine. Mead & Kombucha

For as long as I can remember my parents made wine, they always had a half dozen or so 5 gal carboys going of various varieties.   When I was 12 my parents bought a couple hundred acres and built a house and we started a small farm.

There was a second kitchen downstairs for wine making and canning and a wine cellar begging to be filled up, the wine making really picked up with the ability to grow our own grapes and fruit, so many lovely wines came from that farm.  My parents are both in there early 80’s now and no longer make wine, but i’m enjoying learning from them, and spending time on the farm.

Try your hand at wine making, or one of my other boozy concoctions. It’s fun and will impress your friends!
