My wife and I started making wine kits about 10 years ago. Since then many others have wanted to try their hand at it, and things have kind of mushroomed! There are now 10 different “wineries” in production throughout the year in our basement. Of course the sampling and comparing and sharing among friends is the greatest part, but the wine is the thing that brings us all together. None of us can drink commercial wine anymore so there is always something new fermenting. You can get a feel for the action in the picture of our counter. I even had to make another wine rack to handle some of the aging process. Nothing better than good friends and good wine during a cold northern winter!
