Did any of you have the realization that your significant other is going to want to kill you for starting this "hobcession"? I only started winemaking at Xmas. Last night, laying in bed, I realized that I am going to run out of space incredibly quickly and my wife is going to kill me for having to expand. I have bottled a riesling (quite happy with) and Ed Wort's applewine (can't say I am a fan). I have a 2 gals of pomegranate, 6 gals of Chilean Syrah juice, and 6 gals of Wildberry Shiraz fermenting. That's another 70 bottles in addition to the 55 or so already bottled. My wine area is a little 6x6 area. Not sure where I am going to put all these bottles (no, I'm not asking for anyone to offer to take them off my hands). Five months ago, I would never have thought I would be making more than 50 or so bottles a year. I can see this only getting "worse". I'm curious if others have gone through the "what I have gotten myself into" thoughts? Have you gotten grief from the significant other for money/space issues? Of course, I'm thinking about a skeeter pee from the wildberry shiraz slurry. Help me!
