We inherited three grapevines in the garden, this is partly what attracted me to the property in the first place, I knew we could change all of the things that we weren't happy with.
When we spoke to our neighbours (they are elderly) they reminisced of times gone by, when they sat on our patio drinking the owners homebrew, chatting into the early hours, they said it was beautiful wine and made from their very own grapes simply made me want to retrace the steps of those that lived here before..
The romantic idea of friends and family enjoying our wine was too much to bare so we had a go, it was a long process but hopefully it will be worth it, we can try it in May/June earliest.
In the meantime we tried a fruit wine from a brewers shop, this pack makes 6 bottles for £8.99 and we have tried it tonight. The wine takes 6 weeks to ferment (you have to be patient) before being transferred to bottles, it's definitely worth ago.
The homebrew pack we bought is easily as good as some shop bought wines and it has been great learning a new skill, one I wouldn't have learnt if I hadn't inherited a grapevine.
