This post is for everyone that thinks – “I can’t do it” or “This is too hard”.

One of our members, Tom, just sent me these pictures and said it was AOK to share them with you.

He created his own ‘Bearkat Red’ – a Feb 2009 vintage. Here’s Tom showing it off:

If you look closely, you can see the image of the Bearkat scooter on the bottle…

Besides the wine being great, notice that he made an awesome label, and topped the bottle off with a capsule to give it a finished look.
Here’s what Tom sent me in an email…

My son in law Jeff is a graphic designer.I have restored a couple 60′s vintage off road scooters and he thought it would be fun to make the label with the Bearkat.The bottom of the label says “It takes you there and brings you back”,which was a sales pitch for the Bearkat. The wine came out as a rose’ with just a little fizz.
My wife says it tastes like rose’ champagne.
Thanks again for all the help.
I couldn’t have done it with out your input.
Regards,Tom

    Hi Joseph,
    This was my first batch of wine from my own grapes in the back yard.
    Still don’t know what type grapes they are yet,but the alcohol content is about 13% for the finished product and it tastes good.
    The next bottling will be even better.It will go faster and the wine will taste better too.
    I’m 62 yrs old and have lived here at this location for 15 yrs and always wanted to make some wine.Mike encouraged me to finally just do it.
    Regards,Tom

    Tom – that looks great – be sure not to wine and wyne down the path in that 2 seater – looks like a nice cross country ride – Your collection needs one (or more) of my Personalized Wine Boxes that I make, great for gift giving and/or Holidays – a graphic of the cycle would look great… http://www.PersonalizedWineBoxes.com
    Cheers, Scott

    This is great fun as well as good wine-making. We are just starting to make some more wine Two years of drinking and little making has depleted the wine rack (vey large Ikea rack). We are getting ready to vosit the wine making stores in our area (Strathmore and Calgary). This is almost as much fun as making wine! Carole and Bruce Wallace
