    We have grape vines with so many grapes I would like to make some wine. Anyone know how? I am tired of making jelly. [​IMG]

    If I move the vines you can smell them. They smell sooooo good. But my hands are purple. [​IMG] I think I'll look on the internet and see what I can find.

    It's best if you hold your nose, talk drawn out in a high squeaky voice like you're about to cry and done in the company of others. And say something really irritating over and over and over, "I don't wanna go night night."


    oops, wrong kind of sorry! Just had vacation with 5 kids under 7 yrs. of age.

    If you can't find anything online, I may be able to help you. First of all, go ahead and pick your grapes and get them off the vine and into the freezer. I'd probably wash them first. Freezing the fruit will change cellular make up of the fruit and make it produce more juice. You also need to start collecting empty wine bottles. Most restaurants will have them, especially the Italian ones.

    Let me know if you don't find anything online. I will try to find the websites that I used to go to when I made wine. There was one really huge one that had a lot of info.

    PM me if you have questions.
