So where's the snow?

Wine time!

A week later than usual, I’ve just got my wine started. A friend gave me her red Gooseberrys as a certain dog dug a hole by my bush and it had to be cut back.

The hot summer, with long dry spells then loads of rain doesn’t seem to have affected the fruit,although I only had just enough blackcurrants. Only downside was the scars from the hail…

Three days on, the wine is percolating like mad. Its 26c in my garage, which is really too warm. But nobody told my yeast, it’s having a party!

Now I need to wait for the elderberrys to ripen. I havent made that wine for two years due to bad weather. Looks like it could be a good year for wine!
