OMG Grapes!

Just got a call about an hour ago from a grower I've been corresponding with that they have 500 pounds of merlot for me! She didn't think they were going to have enough but ended up with extra. Shan and I are going out to pick and crush tomorrow afternoon. Wooo!

How much is 500 lbs? volume wise?

In crushed must probably around 100 gallons. In wine probably about 35 gallons or so. I think. It's been a while, heh.

You have enough carboys and buckets? Or do you have to bottle like crazy tonite with last years wine? :)

Well I have enough fermenting vessels, but I still need to get a couple big demijohns to put the cab in so I can put the new wine in the carboys. I think this year I am going to get a barrel, too.

I have a 7 gallon and 2-5 gallon carboys if you need them until you can get more. Let me know.

Thanks. I should be good, since I'll be picking up those demijohns, but I'll keep it in mind. By the way, you're welcome to come over tomorrow if you want to see us crush(or if you want to come pick, lol).
