Hi all,
I am a novice, not a wine guru by any stretch.... I like drinking Red Wine, don't care much for store bought. This all began for me 10 years ago, when a friend up North[used to live in NYC] taught me to make Wine the Old Fahioned way, fresh grapes, Crush & Press, Oak barrels etc.
What a wonderful experience, and terriffic product......He warned me before drinking my 1st Glass of Homemade, he said 'once you drink this you will be Spoiled' ...well was he ever right!
I enjoyed that with him for approx 5-6 years, then moved to NC, where things are not conducive to re-creating the same product, so I began using Wine Kits. Pleased with results, but not the same.

Hello and welcome. You said ever since you moved to the NC you've been making kits. Are you not able to find a source for fresh grapes in your part NC ?
