Chilean Grapes Have Arrived!
Our order from Chile is finally here! Ten cases of Malbec in the background and seven cases of Pinot Noir with a combined weight of about three hundred pounds. We will be crushing tomorrow morning minus the very tasty hand fulls I already ate. Table grapes do not hold a candle to wine grapes. The second you bite into a wine grape, your mouth starts to water and you have to try hard not to eat the whole bunch. In short, we will be crushing tomorrow and starting fermentation on Sunday. Then in a week or two we will press the grapes and start clearing the wine and storing it for eight months to a year depending on taste. The three hundred ponds is not enough wine to fill a barrel but it will produce about sixteen gallons or so of finished wine "100 bottles". I will up date the post as we make progress.
