First of all, welcome to the club! We have received verbal commitments from all of you, and a couple of you have actually paid. Thank you for your support and willingness to take part in this. Leah and I are really excited.
The first point of business to discuss is what are we going to make? We will use a wine making shop in Berkeley that has sources for grapes. They just provided us their price list for the season. We are thinking about the Zinfandel from Amador. We will be getting 1000 pounds, so that comes to 95 cents, or $950. Does anybody have any major objections to this? It will take a lot to change our mind, but let us know.
On a separate note, I am very interested in making a small batch of really really good Napa/Sonoma wine, perhaps Cabernet. I’d like 100 pounds to make 5 gallons. If anybody has a grape source, let me know. I’m happy to pick it myself, and share some wine or money with the grape grower. This is just a side project, if you want to be a part of it and can help, let me know.
