    Went to Walkers in Forrestville, NY, and, suprisingly, brought back 2 whites, Catawba and Valvin Muscat. They tasted great that day, and I've an abundance of reds. SO, it's an all white season for us!

    I got permission from my neighbor to take all the pears that I want so a batch of pear wine is on my list.

    I've got three gallons of plum from last year, ready to bottle. Five gallons of elderberry mead, from a month ago. Its mead because I used honey instead of sugar. And three gallons of this years homegrown Petite Pearl. I racked this a little while ago and am on my second glass. Very rewarding. I still have 25 pounds of frozen elderberries that I'm not sure what to do with.

    Well, I will have a busy fall and winter. To start, I am getting geared up to get 6 gallons of Huckleberry in the fermenter. Then I will get going on the first batch of 4 of Oregon Berry which is a blend of Marionberry, blackberry, Blueberry and Strawberry. I learned a lot last year about fermenter temperature and clarification

    Hands down and going away, the CC Showcase was much better than the WE Selection International. It so happens that the CC Showcase Malbec is among the top 3 or 4 wines I have ever made. The WE SI is fine, but just okay.
