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.

Christmas Tutti Fruti - Sixth Bottle (B4), 17th May 2013
Friday night began with gins and tonics at ten past the yard arm and continued from there. It was a wine making night, so I spent most of it surrounded by glass containers and sterilising solution. I racked the orange and transferred both my dandelion and the rhubarb into their demijohns - a sticky process aided by Claire chatting amiably in the kitchen. We were late eating cabbage leaves stuffed with rice and courgettes, covered in a tomato sauce (we both decided that they would have benefitted from some minced lamb) meaning most of a bottle of Christmas Tutti Fruti sent each of us squiffy. So, all in all both a pleasant bottle of wine and pleasant evening in an unremarkable sort of way.
