    How much do you engage others?

    I have been producing wine since 1979, by myself. In 2000 I moved to a and invited some friends to help with bottling. They all left that evening saying they wanted to make their own batches. I told them to sober up and think it over. Fast forward 20+ years, and these 4 guys are still involved...

    Naming your wine idea!

    Sometimes I use the grape name but like to play with names, including music references. Ravishing Ruby (Tom T Hall) Italian Blend. Spanish Moon (Little Feat) Spanish Blend Recently I made a FWK Bourdeaux, and decided on "French Pretender"

    I left my cork screw at a neighbors

    This tool was given to me from friends. We nicknamed him penis boy but he has a defect. His member separates from his body. when trying to remove from the cork. Not very useful but a nice conversation piece. My go to however is a waiter's corkscrew.

    Grape Sellers in USA

    I have purchased from them the last 2 years, 7-8 lug orders. The grapes were of good quality. Customer Service is lacking. They deal in volume and that's their business. I am considering LP this year. Any opinion of their grapes?

    Finer Wine Kit Finer Wine Kits

    I was referring to my reluctance to simply trash them, no rules against that. I look at them and think they will come in handy but yet they continue to multiply. I don't use Rumpke for garbage, they charge more and then an additional fee for recycling., we contract Best Way service, no recycling...

    I have the same problem with the coolers I can't trash them but very seldom can find a use for them. I do appreciate using alternatives to Styrofoam whenever possible. At least it isn't a box of peanuts with static electricity as one vendor uses

    Perhaps the ugliest car tag redesign in the nation has another possible woe

    Ohio introduced a new license plate several months back. After introduction it was realized the plane was flying into the banner instead pulling it. They have corrected it before release but after starting production

    Did you order a RJS 2021 restricted Nero D'Avola?

    yes I've called them. evasive answers, "they are getting orders, but not sure when mine will be in" Customer service is lacking. Probably last time I will order from them. I was trying to confirm if it was a issue with the supplier or RJS, the distributor.
