Barrel Raising

Date: Sat, Apr 17, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

First Things Second

Date: Wed, Apr 7, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Well, I just realised I hadn’t actually prefaced The Blending Room with more than the announcement. You can’t follow along very well on our TBR project if you  haven’t got a good idea of where we started, can you? So, this is the cement block nest into which we decided to put our ostrich egg [...]

First Things First

Date: Sun, Mar 28, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

We arrived February 26, 2010 to our new home The Blending Room to begin our first task! Drainage. Why you ask? We need a drain for easy clean-up of our wine “messes”.
