Vivaine and crazcudler, Neeshac and I got together a couple of months ago at my place. Had a good visit, shared information. We will likely do that again somewhere this fall. Nucjd is interested too. It is good to share information and do a little tasting too.

I am going to be out of pocket until the second week of October. It would be best if we did it on a Saturday as neeshac and nucjd work as you may. I am retired.We could do it at my place (deck) or anywhere.

I live in Palmerdale which is just north of Pinson.

Saturdays are good for me too. Unfortunately I'm booked pretty solid from mid-October through Thanksgiving. How about the last Sat in Nov or the first in Dec?

I don't have anything to share for tasting, tho my muscadine wine is cherking along slowly. Should be ready for secondary fermentation in another week :) Hopefully. Reeeeally slow primary going on.

I made a wine out of about 25 pounds of muscadine and 5 jars or smuckers blackberry seedless jam. One of the finest wine I have made in my short career.

How about us getting together at Wills Creek Vineyards on November 2. They have classes or meetings of winemakers on the first Saturday of each month. The October meeting had 30 participants.

I plan on going if I am here in Alabama ( I am going to try to be). It is a nice vineyard I think you will enjoy seeing and meeting the folks there.

Since I went to Gadsden yesterday, I think I will not be making this one either
