The Joy of Home Winemaking

Greetings, fellow home winemakers and enthusiasts for home-made wines, fruit wines, country wines, meads, melomels, and fermented concoctions of all sorts. Welcome to this forum for discussing the ancient art of making wine. My name is Terry Garey and I'll be your home winemaker for this site.

But first, a word from/for our sponsor:

Go check out the great jellies made from flowers and herbs www.ElegantTable.com. My friend Karen, who maintains this website for me, has started a small cottage business, growing the flowers and herbs and making scrumptious jellies with them. (Note from Karen: And thanks to Terry, who first inspired me to make Rose Petal Jelly!)
