Colombard, Carnigana and Grenache

These grapes came from work, Free!

I was sitting out front, on break, and took a pic, thinking how neat- WF’s has wine grapes…

never thought that they would end up in my hands- err feet (laughs)

I did a little research and found out they are similar, and so I decided to ferment them all together.

first I had to take them out of their baggies,

I set up my sanitizing station

washed the crushers

taking the first step

in with both feet

the crush is on!

I let the grapes settle
