    I'm hoping Santa will finally bring me that Portuguese Floor Corker that I've been asking for for the past few years.

    What about you?

    Oh, I wish for a pump. Maybe then I'd make a bit less of a mess. Got a capper for my birthday, though.

    I’d love an AIO bottle washer.

    Hey I forgot about those. How do you dry your bottles after you wash them?

    My Christmas wish list is for all my reds to have aged a year or two over this holiday.

    I told Mrs Claus I would like an AIO pump. I am planning a nice bottling party in January to try it out!

    I’ll have to get wine making equipment myself. Santa got a great deal on a S&W Shield 9mm carry gun.

    Still a bottle/carboy washer is high on that list; and a Vinmterica unit with all the bells and whistles; and a healthier bank for grapes this fall.

    I like the Shield. If I had the extra cash I would be between that and the XDS...and more grapes in the fall!

    Check out Palmetto State Armory. $250, but it has a $50 rebate. End cost: $200 plus tax, shipping and transfer at your FFL. Too good a deal to pass up.

    Do you not reuse bottles if you're using waterproof labels?

    Oh, I reuse bottles - but I have never invested in my own labels. It's a cosmetic nice to have. Hence, the wish list! ;)

    Yes much better than the $425! I paid the first year it came out. I do like it though for carry.

    Part ownership of a vineyard, a reefer truck, horizontal bladder press and maybe a bottling line just the usual necessities.
