Default How long.........

...can I reasonably expect my bottled wines to keep??

This is my 2nd year at winemaking and I've had overwhelmingly good successes. Last year I did blueberry, blackberry, red raspberry, elderberry and yellow pear tomato in gallon batches. Currently, this year, I have done a 5 gal. each of blueberry, strawberry and peach. Oddly enough, I drink very little wine. I do give some away. It's just so darned fun to make. I add sorbate and sulfite to my finished product then bottle and cork with Nomacorc.

How long should I expect my wines to stay good in a 60-65 degree, semi dark storage area?

Thanks for volunteering.

Actually........I've delivered a couple bottles to York (Dallastown). Probably be down that way again in the late winter/early spring. Be happy to hook up & do a bottle swap.
