You buy commercial wine according to how easily the label comes off.

For me, it's often the shape of the bottle, and cork finish vs screw cap.

Oak Leaf....dirt cheap, not bad especially the Cab Sauv and the labels almost fall off in water.

Watching your airlock is more entertaining than watching reality shows.

We can get 3 bottles of "Five Oaks" wine for $9.99 here. Is that the brand you are referring to... I haven't tried it... yet.

Here Lately I have been using my parents and neighbor to supply my bottles. I have become very fond of a bottle my neighbor provides me that is frosted like an arbor mist bottle but requires a cork instead of a cap. The reason is that with the Avery label software I use I am able to create semitransparent labels that look great on the bottle.

I've seen 5 Oaks but Oak Leaf is available at Wal-Mart in NH for 2.97 a pop. And DAMN it's not that bad.

When someone shouts "NICE LEGS!", you look at the inside of your wine glass.

you start eyeing up the empties at a diner party, wondering if the host would let you have them if you asked nicely (and if your misses would forgive you if you did).

You go to the wine store and spend your time looking at wine labels for new ideas for your own labels.

You watch a NatGeo show about the footprint you make on Earth in a lifetime and they show 942 bottles of wine and you wish you could collect them up or wonder what they did with all those bottles.

When you forget your wife’s birthday, but can tell the exact vintage date of your first bottle.

You know you are a winemaker when ...

When your wife tells you "no more wine kits for awhile," you fire up the old computer to pick out two more wine kits you know she will love ... confident that her saying "no" really means "yes, yes, order some grape skin kits honey."

You know she wants them as much as you do.
