Wine Making: My First Experience

Pinot Noir - California

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!


  1. Bright eyes dig up a question from generations ago:
    You want to know why the wind blew us
    Together, how our sons will grow, when we will
    Meet again, where will we be as one again?
    Training gives you the desire to examine cause and
    Effect. Experiences about as wide apart as possible
    Come at us, yet we harmonize, learn each other’s secrets,
    Give what we know the other will love, provide
    Sanctuary in a world spinning out of control for so
    Many. This I offer to distinguish myself from regular
    Men, be they handsome or young: a complete heart
    With continued support, undying gratitude, massage
    Therapy, attempts at cooking, quite a way with words.
    I expect you to smile when we chat, remain a solid
    Force, a muse for my art, the reason I will always
    Yearn for more, forever the target of happy life,
    Memories (plans?) and a fresh heart, made whole
    By the time we spent sincerely swirled, sufficiently
    Molded to continually receive jolts of good news,
    Connected forever by this love, complex, alive, strong.
