Seit einiger Zeit bin ich stolze Besitzerin von drei Reben. Überraschenderweise bringen die drei trotz meines laienhaften Gärtnerwissens mächtigen Ertrag. Was liegt da näher als einfach mal selber Wein zu machen? Bevor man aber wirklich anfängt, muss man sich einige Materialien besorgen. Ich habe mir im Internet ein Starter-Set „Diy-wine“ gekauft.

What a surprise! When my family came back from Mallorca/Spain they brought me a bottle of Manto Negro from Binissalem.
