New Wine

OK, the wine that's been sitting in a carboy in my kitchen for over seven months is finally in bottles. The label isn't as funny or inspired as last year's S'WINE label (see below), but it tastes good and I'm glad to have the brewing operation out of my way for another few months. For the last few years I've stopped trying to remove labels from old bottles (a major pain in the neck, and sometimes just impossible), and just recycled my old (commercial) wine bottles, washed them out, rinsed with boiling water, and put the wine in. My label goes over the commercial label. Kind of a nice hodge-podge.

I'm not planning to get pigs this year. We bought two goats, who will become this year's meat at the end of the summer. (Summer is coming, right?)
