    Sampling the "raw" Grape Juice!!!  WOW,,, all taste very similar and is very "heavy and sweet".
    its the wine variety pack - they all seem similar in the beginning but after the aging process, they all have differences - in each batch there is a hands down favorite. Lambrusco (spelling) was th best in the last one. ~E

    This Primary Fermentation Process will continue for about 2 weeks to 2 months at which time the wine is ready for racking and the secondary fermenation process to take place...  Can be drank as wine in as little as 75 days but it does improve with age.
    This only proves what I just said! Very intereesting story here, I slowly viewed a slideshow.

    Yes, you are so right - and remember - whichever way you go or wherever it takes you, enjoy each and every single day.

    Time goes by so quickly you don't want to miss a single bit...
