It has been a long time since I made a post here. I just wanted to update you on what has been going on with this site. I’ve FINALLY finished my house and we have moved in! Yea! Since we are finally getting settled, I hope to be doing more with my blog. I have lots of plans, I just need to spend the time implementing them.
One thing I wanted to talk about today was a visit to Adam’s County Winery in Gettysburg. I had to attend a business trip there and the Miss’s and I decided to visit a local winery. They had some very good wines, but the one that impressed me the most was their Apple Wine. The fragrance of this wine was superb! I knew It was apple wine just by the smell. It had a nice balanced apple flavor, but it was the nose that impressed me.
I make apple wine every year, but it does not have the quality of fragrance that the Apple Wine from Adams County Winery. I now know how I can improve my own apple wine. Unfortunately, I could not speak with the owners to find their secret. I did learn that they use Golden Delicious and Macintosh apples, so I will start there.
This brings me to my lesson for the day. Try different wines than yours. You will be surprised about what you can learn about your own wine making by sampling other wines. A local winery is a good place to start. They usually let you sample a few different varieties of wine. By trying something different, you can learn more about being a better wine maker. Enjoy!
