Fall is the time for grape harvesting. Phil especially enjoys picking grapes on pleasant Fall mornings. Processing involves several hours of work over a few days. Every couple months filtering and racking (siphoning wine from one container to the next, leaving sediment behind) occurs. Phil’s favorite part of wine making is bottling. Usually he makes 20 cases of wine a year. Currently he doesn’t have a brand name for his wine, but is thinking that “C Street Cellars” might make a good name going forward.

Residents of C Street Village Cohousing will be the lucky recipients of Phil’s winemaking talents. He hopes to share wine and include residents in the making of wine.
