bottled

Last night, we bottled two batches of wine. One was called Trio Blanca (which is comprised of Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Blanc) and the other was a Petite Sirah Zinfandel. Both tasted pretty good last night, but they'll be even better with a little aging on the racks. I'm actually sort of behind on my wine-making this year. These have been ready to bottle for a few weeks now. Plus, I have 3 more kits just waiting to be made. I guess it'll get done eventually. I'm probably going to make a 6th batch of wine this summer because I like doing things two batches at a time (it saves me a little effort plus it's always nice to put 50+ bottles of wine on the racks at once).

So, by drinking wine last night, I guess we were bucking the Cinco de Mayo trend. We'll have to make up for it this evening by having Margaritas.
