Greetings

This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Crab Apple Wine - Fifth Bottle (B5), 30th June 2012

Apple Champagne. It is really rather delicious. The wine is a golden hue and it fizzes enthusiastically on pouring. Hence there was no effort involved in finishing the bottle on a lazy Saturday night.

We had spent some of the day at Thwaites Mills, invited by Julia, where Pyramid of Arts had created an installation all to do with Time, involving a clock face with numbers made from bread on a giant hand surrounded by small pots of earth planted with grass and bean seeds. 'Dali-esque' doesn't do it justice. Claire spent Friday baking substitute bread numbers which were covered in bird seed, rather than glitter, to be attached to the clock later. The idea is that as the plants grow, the numbers decay and in September the whole piece will be set free in the Aire and Calder canal.
