My First Wine!

This is my first attempt at making wine from grapes, rather than using a kit with juice. I hope I will have better results.

Day 1. Hung out with Brad Sherman of Gecko winery where I have been volunteering and got a bucket full of Sangiovese grapes.

Day 2: Added SO2 around 1pm.

Day 3. Added yeast nutrients and Red Star yeast-Pasteur Red apx. 1230p.m. Don’t have brix reading yet, I will have to take some berries to class tonight and use a refractometer. Staring to smell good! Tomorrow will have to get some wood chips and more carboys!

Will probably get some Cabernet Sauvignon this Saturday! I am thinking super Tuscan!

Stay tuned!

Dexter inspects the grapes!
