    RJ Spagnols Glad Hatter - Valpola

    I picked up a Glad Hatter Valpola late last year - had a special get 30 bottles free. I am very impressed, easy drinking wine . Kit had grape pack and labels - $89.00. Normally I go with a Cheeky Monkey or CC sterling but for the same price the Glad Hatter IMHO was much better for a good table...

    Other Limited edition kits in general

    I made 1 RQ last year it was the Pinot Gris - turned out great. This year I went a little crazy - order the 2 white LE and LE Cab Merlot and RQ Nero and Petit Verdot. Hoping they turn out well - so far the Nero is in the carboy and the Petit Verdot is bubbling 3 days in the primary.

    WineXpert How many bottles = 12 month supply?

    I am making between 72 and 84 gallons per year. With giving a lot away and storing some for the future ( hard to do) . I having been at it for 3 years - I figure I will slow down to roughly 60 gallons.

    RJ Spagnols Monastrell-Petit Verdot?

    I was thinking more of our American friends. But I am surprised yours just arrived - I got me about 3 weeks ago and I am on the other coast from RJS. And on the Canadian totem pole - The West is way above , us down east.

    Other White port kit? (No chocolate or fruit)

    RJS Ice Wine Riesling is very good - I am making the White Chocolate White Port - it is a little brown colour. The Ice Wine is golden and very sweet.

    RJ Spagnols Anyone make the Hightail Okanagan Merlot? Is it worth the extra $ ?

    See it's $159.00 on the east coast - a little higher then the EP line. Jees they must have delivered the Hightail to the East Coast by hand and individually in order to double the price.

    Other 2014 limited wine kits - what are you planning

    jees, I think Boatboy is a divorce lawyer (or gets a commission from one). Yes sometimes the wifes get upset when you have 7 carboys on the go and 2 in the primary and 3 on deck - my only saving grace is she really doesn't like wine - and since more then half of what I own is wine - I am safe...

    Costco wine kit - a waste of time??

    HFX - I have made the Costco wine (PAKLab) . Not very good - I started out with them . Cheap way to make and learn from mistakes - but you have brewed beer so you don't need a "starter kit". You have a couple of choices for supplies in Halifax. I have use Winekitz , Noble grape and Maritime Brew...
