Fun times this weekend! We had five different wines that were ready to be bottled, so we set aside a day, rolled up our sleeves and got down to business.
recycled wine bottles
After several hours of hard work (and a lot of tasting), we ended up with:
29 bottles of Pinot Noir
19 bottles of Mango
15 bottles of Zinfandel
4 bottles of faux Sherry
(these were all still wines)
We also have 5 bottles of Mango sparkling wine.
The Pinot Noir and Zinfandel were kits. I still have 3 gallons of the Zinfandel bulk aging in a carboy. I’m thinking about blending it with another red, while Mrs. Noontime is lobbying to make it into Port. I have to admit, that sounds like a good idea, too.
I don’t really have a problem recycling wine bottles. My wife (Mrs. Noontime) and I simply refill our bottles with more homemade wine. We always tend to be a little short on bottles somehow… maybe because we give away a lot of wine. Always with a custom label, of course. It’s advertising!
We were bottling a few months ago, and ran short on empty wine bottles. We had to resort to asking friends to save their empties for us, and we even ended up (gasp!) buying bottles. Oh, the horror!
As a home winemaker, you put a lot of yourself into each wine that you make. So when it’s time to choose a gift for someone special, a bottle of homemade wine is a great gift to give to a family member or friend.
But how much effort do you put into the presentation of your gift? Do you take time to create a special label for each bottle of wine that you give away, or do you simply use a sticker to mark the varietal and year?
