    Now what can a title like that have to do with making wine from grapes?? Last night I took my wife to The Fabulous Fox Theater in downtown St. Louis, MO. Dinner beforehand, no wine, no beer. Did have a glass of some non-descript wine while waiting for the doors to open. We sit down in our seats, my wife leans over and kisses me, then says, "You may think I am crazy, but I think this year when we get grapes, we need to get enough to make 12 gallons or more of Chambourcin and 12 gallons or more of a rose, so, we probably need to get 400-500 lbs of grapes." I about fell out of my seat, she has been saying for a while now, slow down, we make to much wine. What am I doing today, looking around for folks I might hit up about grapes this fall. Take it and run with it.

    That’s great. And admirable. A much different dynamic when you both share in the hobby.

    My strategy is a little different. I wait until I pull into the driveway with a truck full of grapes to have that discussion
