So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

The wine’s ready!

P1290159Last year saw an abundance of plums and redcurrants, but not a lot if sun to make the sugar. Still, I made wine from these, plus Peach as I had so many from the farmer. January had them finishing fermenting.

And they’re ok, the Peach  and the Redcurrant needs a little longer, but the Plum to which I added more sugar to before bottling may be the wine of the year, and I made loads!

One thing I’ve learnt is to be more careful of how sweet the fruit is and add more sugar before bottling if its a bit sour- alcohol content -no probs!  Anyone for a wine tasting evening?????
