I'm an 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 has suddenly turned into a semi-serious undertaking, with over 300 bottles of wine aging away in our basement at last count and plenty more on the way.  I may still be an amateur at brewing, but I will soon be a professional at drinking.  Nearly all of my wines feature homegrown ingredients or things that I picked myself.  This keeps my wines rooted in the Keweenaw.

Here's a list of what I've finished so far, in order of when I came up with each batch.  Some 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.
