After I cut my grass (just cut it on Saturday) I am going to hang out in the cool basement and rack my Washingtone valley Riesling then make another batch of Skeeter Pee. Also going to wash some bottles.

Thinking of starting the 4 kits that i brought back from George. These are all Orchard Breezin - Peach Chardonnay; Raspberry Zin; and 2 Kiwi Melon Pinot Grigio. Daughters wedding is Sept 4th (here at HOME) and got to get lots of wine ready. Plus, I have to bottle six cases of a red blend in cobalt blue 375's bottles also from George. That's 144 bottles!!! What am I doing? Fortunately a I can borrow a 3 bottle filler and that sure will help.

Mike, This is a WE Washington Columbia Valley Riesling, sorry. But being the pal I am, If you send me one I will try it and keep you posted. Heck, I'll even send you a video of it bubbling if you want, And no solid bungs!!

Hey congrats Dan. Good luck!


What am I doing today - not too much- it is too darned warm!


I began by going to the Willsboro Cold Hardy Vineyard and took the Phenology data for the week and then finished the initial post prune shoot count including non-growing buds. I could have gegun popping off secondary and tertiary buds as needed, but instead I came home and just got done entering the data into the spreadsheet.


This afternoon I will rack some wines in the winery where it is about 70. Then I will see what else I can find inside!

I'm just playing on the net today. A friend gave me a site in FB that has had me entertained for that past couple of days.
Dan in MD - congratulations
Mike - those solid bungs work well if you ever have empty carboys, just put some kmeta in and use the solid bung, the carboy is ready whenever you are
Dan in PA - My son feels for you, he just finish mowing, we are into summer full swing so its twice a week mowing for the boys. We are going to have to expand our back patio when they start moving out - I don't like to mow!
Rich - today is rather cool for us, expected high only 88
