  • Wine Making

    Does anyone here make Wine? When I lived up North a good friend taught me the old school method, buy grapes, Crush, Press, Ferment, was good fun, and good to drink. Since we moved to NC, no cellar, too hot, temp swings. I started about 10 years ago, making Wine from Kits, includes Concentrated Juice, Yeast, Fining agents. An initial outlay is 2 Fermentation vessels, a Hygrometer , Racking Tube, Bubbler for vessel. Takes around 28-30 days, end up with approx 6 Gallons.
    I get all my stuff thru ;

    Our kitchen designer has a Christmas party for his customers every year and he makes his own wine. It would be a fun hobby, but much easier for me to drink the wine he gives me. He makes an excellent Merlot
    We have lots of vineyards on the North and south fork of Long Island

        Pete I have a decent winery just over the border in VA. It is less then 20 minutes. Why don't you come up for a work shop tour and then we can swing over to the winery for a sampling.

                More new vineyards and wineries making an appearance in the western part of NC. Cotton, tobacco, and dairy farming are almost gone here and farmers are looking for new cash crops. In NY State where dairy farming has been hit hard, they are assisting farmers to raise hops; here in NC it's been grapes and wineries, and now hemp is being promoted. The hemp isn't any good for smoking etc., but makes the best ropes. Don't give up your scroll saws yet though, as these crops are yet to be proven money makers, except for wine, but there you can drink your excess product and not care one way or the other.

                  Bruce we have Duplin Winery inland a bit, however, I find most too sweet. What I make is a Red Zin, and having made the real stuff, without sulfites as preservative, most commercial stuff bothers me. And yes I enjoy all my excess.
