Well, it's been a little over 6 weeks since we started this 5 gallon jug of homemade blackberry wine. The bubbling action has stopped so it looks like we will be doing some bottling this weekend. I have tested it and it is quite delicious!
We just crushed 3 quarts of fruit to start 3 gallons of muscadine wine (I'll post this soon!) and went out to the little cottage to store it. While I was out there checking out the progress of the blackberry wine, I noticed Andy had a little over a half gallon of cherry wine from last year. I thought we were out as this was what was served at our wedding last year.
I poured up an orange cup full and went in an started dinner shortly thereafter! :-)
It was still as sweet as I remember! Hopefully next year's cherry crop won't be destroyed by a freeze and we'll get to share how we make it.
