Made my first wine from hand picked Seibel grapes in Niagara in 1975. The various elderberry, orange and banana concoctions are best left unmentioned. Worked on fruit farms/vineyards in the 60's and 70's and coincidentally, went to school with the founders of Inniskillin and Cave Spring. Used to hunt rabbits in the fields that became Henry of Pelham and Chateau des Charmes.
Which just goes to show that I've forgotten a lot about wine. Just started my first kit wine this year after a hiatus to raise a family. All my orchids died soon after my daughter was born as well
