Hello to all. My mom got me a mr. beer home brewing kit. I'm not a beer drinker, but I tried it anyway. It really didn't dawn on me until I got this kit that you could make this stuff at home. So I did some research on the internet about making some things that I like to actually drink. Wine making is what I chose to do. I really like italian wines. My fiance and I like to drink wine while sitting at home watching a movie. And the fact that we like to give wine as gifts for birthdays and holidays. This seems like the perfect hobby for me to get into. Between wine maker magazine, they few books I have purchased and this website I'm sure I will be ordering my equipment kits and wine kits in no time.
