Making Wine

Our children gave us a give membership for Purple Feet which is a company that helps people make wine and you get 12 bottles of wine.
Ours was a Cabernet Sauvingnon, which we named after a red rose that grows in both our yards, Black Magic.
The wine is yummy and it was so much fun making it.
Here it is....

We let the kids take home 6, we kept six and 12 goes to the company for them to share at their annual party they throw every year and showcase the wines of the year. Ours was the last wine for the party which will be in July.
Our daughter designed the label which is taken from a picture she took of one of the roses that was recently cut. Yup, even with our frosts, the rose keeps blooming!
So, look for a Purple Feet near you, it is a lot of fun.

We would love to do something like this. I'm off to google purple feet. I love the design on the bottle too.
