Besides the wine for today (and this week) (see Wine Cooler).  A home winemaker needs a way to store wine besides in stacked boxes.  For a simple way look here:  Click Here

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.
