Haven't made my own wine for a few years now. 85% of the Sauvignon Blanc vines in the Niagara region were killed by the nasty two last winters. Couldnt get grapes locally so got some trucked all the way from California. 7 cases of Sauv Blanc. Grapes (a little more than 250lbs) Washed and disinfected all the vessels, airlocks, corks, crusher , press and other accessories needed. Will start on it tomorrow morning. Expect the first sip in January-February. No oaking, aging.
