Hello there from sunny California. My name is Cash and I live in the central valley. I work for an irrigation district here and found myself with the opportunity to get some free Grenache grapes, so I bought all the supplies and jumped at the chance. I've always enjoyed the idea of a somewhat self-sustained life style including creating things you want/need at home for yourself, so why not take a shot at some home made wine?! Sounds like a good time to me and I hope that I will keep at it each year and learn/improve as I go. I'm sure this place will help.
