Apple Wine 2012
We've bottled 44 bottles of apple wine this month. I love the color of it. We are experimenting with using blue bottles, but already we've learned that they make it difficult to see the level when bottling the wine; a lot of wine ended up on the floor. (Shameful, I know!) The other new thing we've tried this year is making the wine from cider, rather than from the apple chunks we've used in the past. We're hoping it makes the flavor a bit more rich.
