Hey there all. New to the site obviously, but also new to Winemaking. Just started my first batch and in doing research I came across the forum. Did a little lurking and thought I should do the site right by joining.
I am a long time member of a cigar site so I understand most forum etiquette, and hope to be a contributing member.
My main interests are cigars, bourbon, and wine, though this is my first brewing experience. I live in the Springfield, IL area.
I tend to stick to reds for the most part. Pinot Noir, Merlot, Malbec, and Cab Sav, but don't mind venturing out a bit. For good measure, my favorite regular production cigars are Bolivar Belicosos Finos, Trinidad Fundadores, mostly anything Tatuaje Reserva, mostly anything Padron, and anything Don Pepin Garcia had his hands in.
Anyway, I know little about winemaking but am eager to learn. I imagine I'll spend the majority of my time researching here, using the search function, and asking questions when appropriate. Hoping to gain some knowledge and maybe at some point contribute.
Thanks for having me.
