I started making wines about 14 years ago, when my wife gave me a wine making kit for Christmas. It was just a plastic bucket and a 6 gallon glass carboy. My first attempt was a raspberry wine which turned out to be not drinkable. I was intrigued to find out why. I started doing a lot of research and started buying testing equipment. My wines started to improve at this point. Then my wife bought a grape press for another Christmas gift and so my endeavor into grape wines started. Learning as much a I could about cold hardy grapes and trying to improve on them every year. I started entering my wines into the biggest amateur wine making contest in the world. I started winning golds and silvers. From this point on it's been taking a course of it's own. Its been a lot of hard work and long days and I couldn't have done it without the help and support of my family.
