Nope, this is the wrong attitude. You should be prepared to make great wine with each batch!At this point I don't know that I am ready to make 'good wine' which is why I am playing with the simple recipes to get a handle on the process.
Keep in mind that with each batch, the bar may move higher, when a new wine exceeds all previous ones. The bar won't move with every batch, and with experience it gets harder to move the bar (because most of the wines are at least "good"), but keep it as a goal.
My least favorite wine at any given time is used for cooking wine. Which doesn't mean it's a bad wine, just that it's my least favorite. Unless the batch goes horribly wrong, there's always a use for it.
