Who in the heck decided to grow grapes and make wine in my house? I think it was my Yorkshire Terrier, Hoppy. She's not getting any treats for the rest of her life.
OK, kidding. But what a week! Can you say or spell EXHAUSTED? We received 2 tons of Merlot from Wick Dudley, a grape grower near Chestertown, MD. The fruit was BEAUTIFUL! We also picked our Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Truthfully, if I don't see another grape for a few weeks, I'll be fine.
So right now we have fermenting or getting ready to ferment: Chardonnay, Cayuga, Riesling, and Merlot. The only thing missing right now is the Vidal Blanc grapes, coming soon.
I have nothing witty to say. Even my witty muscle is sore and tired. Stay tuned for the fun Kathryn to return.
