Ack. I dropped a mail to my semi-pro vintner friend yesterday and discovered that he’s driving to a few vineyards in Eastern Washington as of Monday to assess the harvest, and that his first Pinot grapes arrive from Oregon next week. So if I am going to start this project this year, I have to start this project next week. Ironically, I can’t go with him to Prosser on Monday because I have to work on this goal website thing and then attend photography class.

Then make your own wine!
I saw you add this goal in my subscriptions and thought it was perfect for me, since I just started making wine with my wife’s family, and started taking photos of the process.
It’s not as fancy as making it from the grapes, but it’s a fun process nonetheless.
Not my strong suit
Yeah, I cheered you on it, too. I’ve never seen anyone make that many gallons from concentrate. Go Bill!
I decided to attempt this as my first documentary series partly because my friend has gone pro with his home winery, but also because I have a background in it. I learned to do web stuff while working at a homebrew shop that catered to winemakers. So I did enough winemaking in the 90’s to know with absolute certainty that I should not continue my attempts into the 00’s. Matt is quite good at it, though. Wait until you see pictures of this guy’s setup. It’s insane.
In the past, on my own, I had made my own wine from concentrate, but this time, we’re using actual juice. Sometime they’ll get the grapes, and make wine that way, but in the last few years, they’ve taken the easy route and have just used the juice.
Even if you miss the first couple of days, I’d still like to see you cover the rest of the process he goes through!
