    Hi all,

    Not sure how many from the UK are on this forum, but I have been looking around here for some time now - although we have 'homebrew' forums in the UK I haven't found any with a heavy focus on making wine from grapes, probably for obvious reasons.

    I have tried making wine on and off over the past few years but never particularly seriously. This year I have decided to give it a proper go and have been getting informed by using this forum. Picked up around 180lb cabernet sauvignon and 90lb Shiraz yesterday (imported in from Italy) and spent yesterday manually destemming/crushing the cab, going to be doing the Shiraz today. Fingers crossed it will go well!

    Will probably post in another thread on progress.

    Making home made wine from grapes is not limited to where you live. The process is the same the world over. I am sure there are some even the USA (most forum members) that have made Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from imported Italian grapes and can give you some great advise. :)
