I'm trying something new this year. I've always added white sugar or the occasional concentrate to cider to sweeten it after fermentation. It was suggested to me by the owner of the vineyard I...

I've been making wine for several years now. The vineyard I pick my grapes from lost pretty much all the grapes this year due to heavy rains. I was able to pick through them and get enough for a 3...

You can do it now or before bottling, either one. I have done it both ways. Sometimes when I want a selection I backsweeten at bottling time. I take out several 1/2 cups of wine and progressively...
