    In the past I used to make wine for xmas present to friends and family.

    I didn't for a bit because I was too busy to do so but I am thinking of starting again.

    Do you like wine as a gift?

    I voted “no”, but only because we don’t drink wine. Perfectly fine gift though for your friends and family, especially if you know they like wine and will enjoy it. That’s more thought and effort than most put into gift giving.




    Let me know if you get a still and some barrels and make some bourbon ;)

    Something tells me that this is not the first time she has had something white and foamy sprayed at her face in a high velocity...

    It depends. Most people make shitty homemade wine and pawn it off as gifts. If you are using concentrated fruit juice and bread yeast you can keep that shit.

    I started off using those tools but as time has gone on I now make my wine with all natural products as much as I can.

    knew somebody that made fruit wines with real fruit
    elderberry
    cherry
    etc....

    was pretty fucking good...was pretty high alcohol content...probably around or above 20%

    They called it rocket fuel

    Sober now so haven't tasted a batch in years, but I have fond memories

    I have made wine and beer. I like wine alot more when it comes to bottling it but other than that it was the same.

    my great-uncle used to make wine, and I have an empty bottle over the TV in the family room. Legendary wine.

    so yes, even though I don't drink much (and very little wine), I appreciate the time, thought, and attention that went in to a homemade bottle of wine if I receive it as a gift.

    I'm a big deal on Facebook. I don't want to post too much and ruin my brand.

    I have always added small fruit flavours to my wine. One even some chocolate. It turned out great.

    Thank you so much for asking. How long does the process take?

    I usually take 2 to 3 months to do everything from processing to bottling.

    What kind of grapes?

    Also I'm pretty sure it's called a vineyard if grapes are grown there
