    Re-introduction of e-wine

    TxBrew was able to change my username back to e-wine. I had briefly used the name e-rancher. I’ve been off the site a few years and was not able to reset my password.

    New vineyard and new to forum - SW Virginia

    Out of curiosity, why so many different varieties? Also, how much experience do you have with growing grapes? I know this is a winemaking forum and we like to have as many different experiences as possible but just curious why you selected the varieties/numbers that you did.

    Re-introduction of e-wine

    Much has happened since my last posts. I’ll have to spend some time catching up with the latest comments, issues, and successes. To let everyone know, I am an amateur winemaker who has made over 50 different types of wines. I usually make between 150 to 200 gallons per year. This includes...

    Mustang Red Wine

    shanman75, We had an interesting and busy year this year so I apologize for the delayed respond. We bottled the mustang about 90 days ago and it came out very good. We started 10 gallons of mustang pyment but based on the last batch of mustang, we don't expect it to clear anytime soon...

    Mango wine

    The mango wine finally cleared and we'll bottle in a few weeks. I had some last night and it was very good. The final yield was 6 bottles so I lost 4 bottle or 40% based on the recipe. Mark, I hope all is going well and I do see were this would be a very popular wine. JasonH, How...

    Beetroot wine

    I transferred the beet wine and I tried some. It taste like beet juice. Go figure. I expect it to change as it processes. Interestingly, it did not taste or smell earthy which was one of the expressed concerns (unless you consider the taste or smell of beets as earthy). I plan to plant more...

    Beetroot wine

    And straight into the secondary for three weeks. And yes, it is a warm salad with a touch of fig wine. Okay, more than a touch. e-wine.

    Beetroot wine

    I enjoy beets, greens and all so if the wine comes out good, that's a plus. I'll look for the ones that look like carrots for my fall planting. I plan to try it as a dry wine but we'll see. And I do expect to bulk age it. My first fig wine had an earthy nose (a.k.a. smelled like dirt)...

    Beetroot wine

    I got too involved with other wines last summer to continue with this one so we ate the beet and I planted another batch this year. We started a batch of beet wine over the weekend. I planted less seeds but the geese did not help so I actually got a better crop. I also planted pumpkins and...

    Muscadine varieties for wine

    I racked the mustang wine yesterday and the s.g. was lower and the flavor of the wine has improved. I'll let it run its course and see where it ends up. I was not able to find any mustang grapes this year due to lack of time. e-wine
