Progress has been made. I have done a bit of research, laid my hands on an E.C. Kraus catalog and took the plunge to buy a winemaking kit. Johannisberg Riesling is it. I've had the supplies for about a week now, but time has not been widely available around the house due to the twins and the husband's long hours. I was excited to get it started on my day off yesterday, only to discover that I did not have enough bottled water and I wasn't going to drive 40 miles just for more water (just to note - you don't drink the water in these parts - unless you like sitting on the toilet). I suppose I could have used the remaining 5 gallon jug of water for wine-making and Kevin and I could have drank beer to quench our thirst. Hmmm...why didn't I think of that last night. My wine could have been happily fermenting today.
Perhaps Sunday will be the day.
I also need to make some decisions on what type of vines I shall plant and where they will be planted. I am so good at procrastination, but the dream is not dying.
Anybody know how to navigate winery laws? Perhaps there are so few in Montana because the regulations are so cryptic.
