Four Laws of Home Winemaking
Winemaking is too much of an art to have real laws, like the laws of physics, but home winemakers are well advised to keep these four principles in mind at all times:
Useful obsessions: You cannot worry too much about sanitation, temperature, and oxygen.
Buckets: You cannot possibly have too many buckets available in your winery.
Blending: This technique is the home winemaker’s best friend.
Quantity: You cannot make great wine in quantities small enough to drink by yourself.
