This menu is the gateway for my posts, divided into categories. The posts are listed in reverse chronological order.
I’ve written numerous technical and how-to posts regarding wine and beer making, based upon research and practical experience in wine and beer making since the early 1980’s. The how-to papers explain how *I* do things, to provide an example for others, including explanations of why I do what I do.
These posts are different from the white papers as they are more about me.
Wines … in Detail
These blogs are deep dives into exactly what I did for specific batches of wine. I went into a lot of detail and included many photos. The intent behind each post is to examine different facets of winemaking, and I think I did a reasonable job of making them distinct, although there is obviously a lot of overlap. At this time (August 2023) I won’t start another one unless I identify something different enough to justify the effort.
While I may start batches of wine any time during the year, my main focus is on the grape wines I start each fall. During the year I make and re-make plans, as I get different ideas, which I bounce off my son and niece. There is also the matter of which grape varieties are actually available, so plans may change at ordering time.
I document major changes to site structure, and the history may be found in these posts.
