We sampled a few combinations, and eventually decided on the following blend of the three whites we are working with:
No, we didn't blend a red and a white! Reds are next up for bottling...they just happened to be sitting next to each other in carboys for the picture. Aren't they cute?
We bottled in our humble wine making room, aka, the utilities room.
And only had one bottle casualty...broke all over the floor. Oops! So we ended up with 18 bottles of our newly created blend.
By next year, we hope to move this all out to the outbuilding for a larger production. Not that I don't love having wine spilled all over our basement floor. Report on our chicken coop transformation coming soon!
Next up in our winemaking excursion this week: Grappa!
