It is September and I thought I would start a thread for all of this year's crushes.

As most of you know, I am recently retired. My plan was to skip this year, but my family had other ideas.

So this year, I will be having a limited crush. We will plan on making just 300 liters and invite just my more immediate family.

This goes off in a couple of weeks. Should be fun.

Pictures to follow.....

This is all I have to offer this year. Like John I planned on skipping this year, unlike John my plans didn't change. My few grapes didn't cooperate anyway and I only had about 10 lbs. of my own Cabernet Sauvignon to do anything with, so......
CABERNET GRAPE JELLY!!!!! Crushed, cooked and bottled the same day, no bulk aging here my friends.

Yield might be low, but they are nice looking grapes.

Great pictures!
As some of you know of me from past years. I get my Cab grapes from Sonoma and Napa. Estimated date of crush this year is mid October. I will upload some pics next month.

Love this old press. Any idea when made?

And what does it say on the legs?
It’s been with my friends family for at least 25-30 yrs.
I’ll get the information on legs later this week.
