mr and mrs d's day off!

life is a Cabernet!

yesterday we took the day off and drove

to  Lacey...

the kids gave their dad a gift certificate to

Classic Winemakers for his birthday and

father's day last year.

after a bit of wine tasting,

he decided to make his current favorite...

Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Kim is adding grape juice from Red Mountain.

Andy, our wine making host, is adding pure water!

Red Mountain is a region where some

amazing vineyards grow in eastern

Washington State!

we were able to taste the grape skins

and pulp! ooohhhh so sweet!

my sweet and happy wine maker was really having

a blast...loving every minute of the experience.

final touches... Hungarian Oak pellets

and fine French Oak!

add a little Hungary...

and sprinkle in some France!


after some careful stirring techniques...

it's ready to go to it's special room

for it's transformation!

in May we will return for bottling...

that experience will be a whole new post!
