a smart dog can sniff out a good wine



Or my excursion into winemaking

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.  Where possible I will place worthwhile references under the links heading.

The current stroy is at: Making Wine with the previous stories listed by episode. I have added a new page showing my labels.

Crush 2017

The wines have been bottled as of the end of May.  Letting thm rest for a couple of months.  Have 2 cases of White Primitivo/Zin, two cae of Aplle Wine, and four caes fo Primitivo/Zin.

And now some news about my 2016 Syrah!  I won a silver neadl at the Alameda County Fair and a Bronze at the Winemaker International Competition!  Also a lot of positive feedback from people who have tasted it.
