Hey Gibbs, I know what you mean. My father-in-law showed me how to make wine in a carboy now i'm up to 20+ carboys making wine and have been very successful. I have been asked if I can supply larger quantities for stores and I have an exclusive deal on one of my wines fruit wines. Looks like my basement operation might become a full time operation in a few years.
Where do you get your fruits, grapes, cherries, etc? I'm looking for a supplier where I can get them in the winter. Currently I pick the fruits on my own off my own cherry trees and have some farmers in Indiana that let me pick on their abandon sections of their farms. But that puts me at a dead end when my carboys are now empty because all my holiday wine is sold.
