Hi folks, new (ish) wine maker here in the great white north! I've been making wine and beer for about 6 years now, nothing intense though, 3 or 4 batches a year. I bought 40 acres of freedom in the country a few years back, so I'm slowly building up a vineyard and orchard, plus a garden and all the classic "back to the land" stuff. Pretty happy to have found this forum, it's helped me a bunch already! lol Cool to see such a cross section of people, from hobbyists like me, to professionals making a living from it.
