    The last time I made some wine it turned out way too strong. You could run a car motor on it...

    It's hard for me to find the right food to match with Rose. I prefer Red over White because of its robust taste.

    I like doing things myself so of course the best wine for me is the stuff I make myself. We buy 100 cases of grapes, a few different types and have a press and de stemmer.
    We also make a little Port, my favorite and Grappa which will kill you or blow up your house. :cool:
    But when I buy it, I like Pino Noir or Pino Grecio, Merlot or almost anything that is not to dry.

    My God. Are you a wine business or you do it out of hobby like how my dad kept a home keg system?

    I make it as well Paul on an Industrial scale to keep me and my wife in liquor! I also make my own English ales with kegs, bar etc. Been doing it for about 5 years and prior to that I spent a fortune on wine! I drink primarily reds but also make white as well.

    I don’t bottle anymore for the last year. I just leave in demijohns until needed and then put it into a 20litre bag in a box (wine box). So much easier!

    We cant easily get grapes in the volume needed here in the U.K., so I use the Winexpert Kits mainly the high end Eclipse kits. The wine it produces is pretty much as good as you buy otherwise I wouldn’t do it.

    Same with the beer, because it’s made for my own tastes, I can’t bare to drink beer from pubs anymore, tastes like fizzy water!

    And sat outside in the garden drinking something you have made yourself, that tastes that good, is truly wonderful! Lol

    WE haven't made it in 2 years because my friend who stores all the equipment moved. We may stat up again soon. The last time we made 150 gallons of which I think I only have one bottle left.

    It costs about $2.50 to make a bottle not counting thousands for the de stemmer, vats etc.
    I never tried to make beer but we drink much more wine and buy it by the case. We use our boat a lot and have people on a few times a week. :D

    That is absolutely amazing. I should've tried doing that but I have to procure the right equipment to start with.
