[Welcome, Eschatonians! --lambert]

Those of you who have followed my series on home winemaking have read about my Red Currant wine. This year I entered it into the Indiana State Fair International Wine Competition, the first time I've entered any of my wines in competition. And I'm pleased to announce that it won a Silver Medal!

Not only has the wine been judged very fine, but your label is snazzy and looks damned good with that medal around it.

How very nice to get some recognition, and good on you as well for having the courage to enter the contest. Well done, indeed.

(Are you entered in the WI State Fair too? If so, break a leg!)

bringiton - I didn't have my entry ready in time for the Wis State Fair, the wine competition is earlier in the year and judging is done before the fair starts.

Next year I'll know and be ready.

WI does a good state fair. Nothing quite like the aroma of that livestock barn on a August afternoon.

Congrats! It's beautiful. I've never had currant wine, so I'm ready to buy a bottle from you. (My grandfather and dad made wine. The dessert grape was to die for, the dandelion was lovely, the banana...not so much.)

But to maintain my amateur standing I can't sell it, and besides, this year's supply is diminishing rapidly. But if there's ever a Corrente meet-and-greet I guarantee if I'm there, wine will follow. I'll likely be at Eschacon next year if any of you can make it - there will be samples.

And thanks for linking to your old series on winemaking. I didn't know about it and can't wait to read it!
