Wine Update

Several times a day the handsome Italian winemaker pushes the grapes down in the barrel as the carbon dioxide pushes them to the surface.
The beautiful juices flow out of the handcrafted press. Do not suggest to the winemaker that he has stomped the grapes with his feet like Lucy - this annoys him.
The juice rests and relaxes in five gallon jugs. Now we wait.

The aftermath in my laundry room/winemaking room. Yikes! (He cleaned it up though.)

Oh my. It looks like quite a process. At least he doesn't make you stomp it with your feet like that old I Love Lucy episode.

I'll be over in about 2 days.

I'll bring a loaf of bread and a sampling of brie.
