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.

Blackberry Wine 2019 - Eleventh Bottle (C4), 26th-27th March 2021

Blackberry 2019, on the strength of this bottle, is a fine vintage. It is a wine that is deep and round and delicious. Therefore it is unusual, and shows remarkable restraint, that we have stretched it out over two nights. Friday was a result of having too much to drink on Thursday. Tonight, though, has been Decided By Claire. I quite fancy a whiskey but we have had a Manhattan already and she is probably right. Claire would replace "Probably" with "Definitely"

Our Rhubarb is starting to come through.


  1. Your BlackBerry 2019 sounded perfect!
    My 2020 was quite dry but tastes fine.
    Love your emails, have a good Easter

    1. My 2020 is also a good vintage I think. We have had one bottle so far, but I will probably leave it a couple more months before our second.

      Have a good Easter yourself. I shall be making Spiced Beetroot wine over the next couple of days.
