Knowing when and how to make and use simple syrup is a tool in every winemaker's toolbox.

Itā€™s been fun and a total learning experience, although, I've had my share of ups and downs along the way.
And what I know from not having any tools or knowledge on how to, I thought and asked my way through it,
So, when tweaking cheap wine kits first was a thought, I said to myself, less is more, plan your work and work your plan, then I learned how to do more with less until I had more than what I really needed,
Love my basement, itā€™s my world and you are all welcome in it.

Making a decent bottle of wine isn't hard unless you take the fun out of it.
