On October 15th, Nick and I had the pleasure of going to The Wine Bottega to bottle our barrel of Pinot Noir. This was my first experience making wine and I have to say, I am in love with this process.
Firstly, our wine turned out great! We chose a California Pinot Noir, and made a total of 29 bottles.
The first night we accompanied our first bottle (well.. 2 first bottles) with an antipasti platter filled with cheese, cured meat, olives and bread. YUM!
I highly recommend making your own wine, especially if you are like me and you enjoy a casual glass of wine with dinner, or after a long day, or on a Monday, because well, Mondays suck, and wine is great!
