I'm a professional amateur homebrewer.  To be honest, I didn't even drink wine before I decided to start making it.  It just seemed like a good idea at the time, and a great way to put to use a ton of the sugary foods I was generating on our hobby farm.  What started as an experiment with one or two different varieties suddenly turned into a semi-serious undertaking, with over 300 bottles of wine (and 150+ bottles of mead) aging away in our basement at last count and plenty more on the way. Nearly all of my wines feature ingredients or things that I grew or picked myself.  This keeps my wines rooted in the Keweenaw, or at the very least rooted in my manual labor.

Here's a list of what I've finished so far, in order of when I bottled or started each batch.  Some wines I've made more than one version of and those are all included on the same page.  Click on each to learn more and see my fun labels.
