Looks like I will be making more wine that I bargained for in 2006. I've been contacted by two people who have grapes they can't process and who want to find a good home for them. One is an old friend who I haven't seen for more than a decade but who has established a sizeable vineyard - so plenty of grapes, and from the measurements of TA and pH, they need harvesting pretty soon - this weekend looks ideal. I'm quite excited. I'll have reasonable quantities of four varieties to play with - two red and two white.

Is all this rain going to be a problem?

The rain up here in Sheffield has just about finished off the grapes on my allotments outdoor vines. I note also Bordeaux has taken quiet a deluge this week! How are you going to go about making the wine Jamie? Is it truly going to be a garage job? Or have you got a cunning plan? Can we, in good time, try it and write up our impressions on your website.

Drinking a SA Cab Sav; Rooiberg I think, don't go there.
