Making wine

When Art and I moved we were lucky enough to buy a house with a cantina, for those of you who don't know what a cantina is, it's a wine cellar. So .. Art started making wine. He bought 2 buckets of wine juice when we first moved here in Feb. 08 for 65.00CAD per bucket and each bucket makes about 30 bottles of wine. Unfortunately the price of wine juice in our little town has not been that low again, what to do?? Seriously, what am I going to do? Art doesn't drink wine, basically our deal is he makes it, I drink it. I was complaining about my dilema with my dad who lives in Vancouver and guess what..there is an Italian store in Vancouver that offers wine juice, about 20 different types in white and red with prices ranging from 40.00 to 60.00 per bucket. When I lived in the lower mainland I used to shop there but didn't know they carried the wine juice.

OK, so I found the supplier but how to get it to my house, six hours, and two ferries away.

Well, this is where friends and family come in, whenever someone comes to visit they are requested to bring two buckets of wine, thanks Gail and Ralf and Niamh and Glenn. They have kept me in wine.
Everyone is welcome just bring wine juice.

You and Art are amazing. You do so many wonderful and exciting things. Wayne and I have to travel back and forth to Bellingham to see my mom quite frequently. While we try to shop locally to support our economy, there are some items that are just so much cheaper that we have to take advantage. Each trip includes a bottle of wine each plus a variety of things I've added to my shopping list for price comparisons. -- Margy
