Had two batches of wine aging in the secondary while we traveled this summer. Running six gallons of Shiraz through the filter prior to bottling.
Sterilizing the bottles with a sodium metabisulfite solution prior to bottling.
The next two batches fermenting in the primary. The Island Mist is a Coconut Yuzu “chick wine” for the wife, the other is a Sangiovese for yours truly. A happy wife will put up with the clutter and smell of wine making.
