Making Homemade Wine + Growing Grapes = Homestead Happiness

  1. Great post! I’m going to plant two vines in my greenhouse this year, and your video will be a great resource for how to prune them. I think my two greenhouse grapes will be table grapes, but we might plant a small vineyard down the line, too. My husband would love to make wine, and I would love to drink it!

  2. Oh what a dream!! I have been dabbling in alcoholic ferments, but I haven’t turned out anything really great yet. I will definitely be coming back to this post when we’re picking grapes this summer. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ah. I meant putting sulphites in the wine after fermentation to stop bacteria enjoying it before you do. It’s commonly done commercially. I’ve lost a few batches because of this, so last time I popped some in, and it seems to have worked.

    1. Hahaha I’m sorry about that I was confused I’ve never tried it before but I might look into it I’ve never lost a batch but with all the effort that goes into it why take a chance are they readily available on line ? Thanks for the tip I love having new ideas to research
