Just started making wine a few months ago. I love wine. So I decided I'd try to grow my own grapes (other than the muscadine vines I have) only to be disappointed that way down here in Louisiana there are only a few types, like the Norton grape, that can be grown here successfully and it doesnt make very good wine. So I had to find another way. I discovered wine making kits. My curiosity as to why I was doing what I was doing led me here to this awesome place with a plethora of knowledge and experience. I've been reading through threads and have expanded my understanding so much (thank yall for that) so I decided I'd join the fun. I'm an extremist when it comes to my hobbies so like some of you here I have let the hobby consume a ton of my free time (and $). Which I love so far!
