We are Diane & Ron Rudnick of Liberty Lake Washington (Between Spokane and Coeur d’Alene ID) We are growing 50 vines split between 2 varietals: 25 Pinot Noir Precoce 25 Chardonnay Wente 72 We affectionately are calling our wine and vineyard CRAP Wine Cellars or crapwinecellars.com - although we are not a commercial venture, just hobbyists. CRAP stands for Cheap Retired Airline Pilot !! The vines are in year 3 and we plan to give it a go this year. We are a month into Veraison but Brix is still about 17-19º so we will wait another couple of weeks before picking. We are also planning a trip this fall so starting fermentation is not viable and we plan on crushing/de stemming and freezing our lot of Pinot Noir must until we are ready for it. For practice .. and to have a comparison we purchased 5 gallons of frozen must from Brehm Vineyards of Pinot Noir from the Columbia Valley. We are currently processing MLF on 3 gallons + 1 bottle after primary and racking off the gross lees. We bought a crusher/destemmer, a Blickmann Wineasy fermenter and press and the Vinmetrica SC300 and SC55 analysis kits for So2, pH, TA nd MLF. We’re reading a lot, scouring the internet, watching YouTube and taking advice wherever we can. Just stumbled on this site today.
