I've been making wine for 30 years this year. I started as a child taught by my mum. Didn't drink it then obviously but I did make it. AND I'm still learning everyday.
Wow. Anyone else had a realization like this?

I have been making wine for a long time as well. I am always learning something new all the time. This forum is one of the best learning ones out there. We all have screwed up our wine at one time or another. Here we not only share those episodes but also share out successes. :hug

Goodness, yes. I have had some spectacular screw ups over the years. I always say that when I ruin a wine I do it on a grand scale!

I have only been making wine now for about 1.5 years and have learned everything I know from this forum and it is an awesome place. At this point I am not doing this with any other wine makers in this area. So what does this mean..when I screw up I just blame Wade and Tom...:db:tz:db:tz:sm

Fortunately any of mine were minor and I was able to fix them. Only due to learning here and it all relates back to impatience. Sometimes I get so excited I just want to bottle but you need to wait.

Doug, you'll get a nice supply soon enough. My first year I kept it small not sure if I was going to like wine making. After that I slowly started doing more and more then Julie got me into this "Tropical Breeze" and it looks awesome!!!! I just racked it Friday and I'll let it age.

Thanks, all of you are the BEST!

I have really enjoyed this forum and all the helpful people on it. I'm new to wine making only 10 batches in 2 1/2 yrs. I have benefited from help, ideas and instruction I have found here It makes me feel like Im part of a big family.

Lloyd you are part of a family. Good to have you here. Ask away. What are you making now? What have you made? What do you want to make?

We'd sure all be happy to help if we can.

All you have to do is ask.

I'm kinda wondering too! She told me she was 24! I should have checked her I.D. before we decided to get married.

Come to think of it, she is way to ornery to be 24!!

(Troy cowers under the desk with his tail between his legs and waits for that proverbial smack of the frying pan) LOL
