Smart Dog WineryTM

a smart dog can sniff out a good wine


My first effort at making my own wine was in the late 1960’s (I was a teenager about 17 years old) in Florida trying to make orange wine.  Not knowing anything about, it was less than successful (miserable failure is a good description).  

Fast forward 40+ years, and here I go again, but this time I spent more time and effort learning what to do.  And I am now making some wines that wine awards.  

This site is to pass on what I am doing, and how you can do it too! Where possible I will place worthwhile references under the links heading.
