Smart Dog WineryTM

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.

On 21 May 2016 I was awarded a silver medal for my 2014 Old Vine Zin at the 2016 Winemaker Conference in Santa Rosa, CA.
