When I was first starting out as a wine blogger, I used to have a rule that I would never write about wines from other countries.
I mean, it’s not like I didn’t know any good ones, right?
But I would always write about them if I thought they were good, and they’re not.
I’d write about the good ones like I did about the wine I grew up with.
I love French wines, I love Italian wines, but I can’t stand any of the Italian wines.
So, I was like, “Well, I think I can do better.”
I started thinking about making wine from local produce.
And the reason that’s interesting is that, for me, there’s no better place to get wine than from the vineyard.
The vineyard, when it’s fresh, has all these different flavors, and you get that same flavor on the table and you taste it.
And so, if I can just get wine from that, that’s going to be pretty good.
But I’m not going to get it from any kind of supermarket.
I’m going to go and pick up some fruit from a local fruit stand and then put it in the refrigerator and see what kind of fruit it tastes like.
And so I started experimenting.
I started making wines from my own berries and berries from the local garden.
And it was like…
I’m thinking about that now.
But that was one of my first attempts to start making wine.
When I was growing up, I had an obsession with berries and vegetables.
And my mother was one who, when I was young, would bring me around a lot of berries and produce and pickles and stuff, and we would just sit and eat and talk about it and it would become a big part of my life.
And I would love to think that I have something like that, too.
So, I started doing some research and trying to figure out how I could do that.
My first experiment was making wine with some of the berries and fruit.
It’s pretty amazing.
You can get a lot more fruit than you think you do, and it has such a different flavor than berries.
So I was thinking about what I could use to add some sweetness to the wine.
And, of course, I found some great berries in my backyard.
So that was the beginning of the first experiment.
In fact, the fruit was my inspiration.
I had this idea of making a grapefruit wine.
Because I love to eat grapefruit.
And what I wanted to do was put a little bit of fruit in the wine and make it a bit sweeter.
And then, I decided that I was going to add a little more of it to make it like a grape.
And you know, I would add a bit more fruit to make a little sweetness.
And a lot, a lot fruit, but not too much.
So when I started looking at different grape varieties, I came up with this idea that I’m making wine using only one type of fruit, which is called grapefruit, and one type that’s called the grape.
So this is the idea of adding a little grape to the end.
Now, if you’re just doing a little juice, it doesn’t sound that important.
But when you’re adding a lot to the juice, the flavors are really different.
And that’s what I was trying to do with this first experiment with wine.
I thought, I’m trying to create something that I really like and that I think is unique.
And with my first attempt, it worked really well.
I think it tastes really good, too, and I think you could do a lot with it.
To make the wine, I first went to the farm where my mother grew the grapes, and then I had a little bag of berries to put in the jug.
And after I added it to the jug, I put the grapes in a cooler and put the wine in the fridge.
I put some sugar in there, too and it had the same flavor as the berries.
And when I tasted it, it was delicious.
A couple of days later, I tasted some wine from it.
I tried it with some apple and some honey and a little wine.
You know, the grapefruit really was a winner.
What I was really looking for was a grape that I could taste.
And there was nothing like the grape I had growing there, so I thought I’d try another grape.
That’s why I came back to my farm, which was also where my mom grew grapes.
Here’s what the grape tasted like when I put it into the wine jug.
It had the fruitiness of berries.
The wine tasted like it was made from grapes that were growing in a garden.
It was a little
