Well, the wine is bottled and stored away for another ccouple or three months to give it a bit more time to mellow and mature. It is beautiful to look at...it has an orangy blush color. I used rhubarb, prune plums and saskatoon/blueberries in the making and the plums have sure given it a lovely color. Reminds me a bit of a sunset just as the colors are beginning to fade a bit. And hey, the taste is pretty good, too. Not bad for my first attempt at wine making. I don't know if I would ever have started, though, if my good friend had not walked me through it every step of the way.
It is nearly as satisfying as finishing a beautiful quilt........but not quite. So, today I do believe I can spend some time in my sewing room and then tomorrow I have to get DH ready to head out to Oshkosh, Wisconson on the weekend.
For those of you who do not know what this momentous week is about, it is a week dedicated to everything and anything aviation. At this time each year, Oshkosh becomes the busiest airport in the world and there are people that come to this venue from all over the world. Even celebrities like John Travolta, Harrison Ford and Chuck Yeager attend regularly. I have been there once, and though it is not my cup of tea, I surely can understand why my Hubby loves it. It is for him, what going to quilt show in Houston, Texas would be for me.
