So Im making wine...anyone else?

Recommended Posts

I finally decided after many years of much talk about it Im making my own wine. My parents place in GA has two lines of vines that the guy before them used to make wine from. I visited last weekend and after some research the Reds were called Muscadine and the whites are called Scuppernongs, both in the same family. I guess its a popular wine made along the eastern side of the US. Of course nothing as popular as the usually seen varietals.

 

So being that the grapes were free I harvested about 35 pounds and got about a hair more than a gallon of juice. Got my supplies and Im a week into the fermentation process. Im excited and definitely going to continue after this batch whether it be a failure or success.

 

Anyone else have this as a hobby whether it be beer or wine?

I just drink it. Have a buddy who makes it and from his stories I can say to be careful with large glass containers and keep everything super sterile.

my dad works on an experimental farm so they do nothing with the crops they grow so ive always had access to thousand of pounds of various muscadine grapes (seedless wont grow down here, but they are working on a variety that can) but ive never felt like making wine out of it.

research farm. they breed plants together to make insect repellant, drought resistant higher nutritional etc crops.

 

every type of blueberry madein the usa was most likely developed on this farm or its sister farm.
