Boy Makes Wine: A White Merlot Story

Things have been quiet around here lately. Today I’m sharing the kitchen partner’s latest project: 30 bottles of White Merlot he bottled just before the holidays.

Have I mentioned my husband has a thing for wine? The week I started this blog he was bottling a German white. I pick restaurants for desserts, he checks the wine menu first. He’s dragged me to most of the wineries in Minnesota (as if it’s all that painful to spend a Saturday afternoon with chocolate and a flight of wine!) And our last vacation was to Napa Valley to ride the wine train, which has been on his bucket list for ages. His bond with wine means I get to see and taste some pretty spectacular bottles. So glad he picked this and not amateur boxing for a hobby!
