A few years ago, a friend in our wine club brought a mystery bottle to one of our gatherings. When I found out later that he had made this bottle of wine, complete with an attractive label and impressive origins, I thought it would be great to make some of my own wine. Several months and thousands of dollars later, I was ready to go and only needed some fruit. Only, I say, when in fact, that was the most difficult aspect, because without good fruit to start, you’re less likely to end up with good wine. Then I got a job at a winery and found myself, literally, knee-deep in winemaking. My equipment still sits in storage waiting for the day when the inspiration (and fruit) hits me.

In the process of acquiring the needed equipment, I found a few sources online. If you’re looking for winemaking resources, here are some that I’ve found.

    Hi. I know it’s a long shot but I am searching for a brick of wine. My Great-Grandfater most likely was a rum-runner on Lake Erie and I own the cottage he built there. I am pretty sure that was part of his network along with his grocery store in Cleveland. So I am celebrating the 100th birthday of the cottage with a Roaring 20s party. I’ve investigated prohibition and I am working on getting vintage bottles of liquor and wine. I’ve read so much about bricks of wine and I’d really like to try and get one for the party. Do you have any idea where I might find one for sale?
