Shark River Wines
Distanced from the days of fruit crushing with our feet, our wine group processes 3000 lbs of grapes with our new destemming crusher. Supporting our crusher are large food grade fermentation tubs, variable volume stainless steel tanks and gravity fed bottle fillers. The whole operation is housed in a prefab garage which has been dedicated as our wine room. www.sharkriverwines.com Name: Anthony V....

We have been making wine in Macedonia, Ohio since 1980. The grapes come from our yard. We have 21 vines which are over 30 years old, concord, niagra, and cayuga grapes.

Wine And Sausage

Since my extra bedroom stays about 60 degrees a few months out of the year (if i don't turn on the furnace), I'm able to ferment my wine, and also cure my sopressata sausage.

Wine At An Early Age
I began wine making at the age of 16. A quart of grape juice in the fridge was found to have started fermenting, and I became quite obsessed with the process. My grandfather subsequently got me hooked when he shared an age old elderblossom recipe and older lady he knew shared with him. We would gather blossoms and make the wine together. Another favorite was mulberry, which we gathered in Newark,...

Father to son...
My father started making wine back in the 1960’s. He had a very basic set up - I remember a dozen or more gallon jugs each with it’s own air lock - a Styrofoam cup taped to the side of each jug with a tube coming out the top of each jug. Some of his wines weren’t so great but some were very good. I helped him from time to time but mostly it was just him, however I always helped drink the wines!He...
