One of the things that has been keeping me so busy of late is the vineyard. Remember the vineyard? Twenty Norton grape vines I planted several springs back. I’m making my first batch of wine this year, about 10 gallons. It’s really an experimental batch; I’m learning as I go. I’ve learned that I already have made several mistakes. I almost hope the wine is awful, because making wine is a lot of work and bother. I wouldn’t have to do it again! However, it’ll be several months before we know anything for sure. More on this.
