I have been making wine 40 years I use to pick my own fruit. I made Blackberry wine 6 years ago picked all the blackberries from my blackberry patch in the back yard next to the garden. It made some good wine. I tried to grow Blue Berries, Rhubard, Raspberries but they didn't make it. I have an apple tree but it does not make good wine. I planted a plum tree but no plums yet, plum and pear are both excellent wine. I have always wanted to make Beet wine I bet it is good. I made some Silver Queen Corn wine once it was good it tasted like white wine. I made strawberry wine 5 years ago it turned out like white wine too it was good and gone pretty quick. Now I make wine from kits it is much easier. I am getting older and the kits save me a lot of time plus it is better wine.
I made this wine November 2009 a year ago from Wine Expert Selections Internationale kits. This is good wine I have made it before it is equivelent to $50 a bottle wine. 26 bottles of Chilean Pinot Noir Gold Metal winner kit and 26 bottles of Chilean Merlot Gold Metal winner kit. I got all the empty bottles from the recycle dumpster. Wine was aged in the 6 gallon glass jub for more than a year, I bottled it yesterday. It is tasting pretty good already. The other time I made this it was extra good after it aged 2 years. Once it gets good it didn't last long. Last count I had 185 bottles of wine aging now I have 52 bottles more. The Blackberry kit and Raspberry kit are both excellent they are gone, I need to make more. Blackberry needs to age 3 years. I see looking at the photo I got the date wrong it was made Nov, 25, 09 now I have to change all the labels. Wine is very easy to make from $100 kits it takes about 1 hour then you wait. The wine cost me $3.84 per bottle.
