Default So much wine, so little time

Here is a picture of my wine cellar. My wife and I just processed 292 lbs of Blackberries. I mixed 4 cans of Barbera and some American Oak powder to make 20 gals. The rest is a Medium Body Blackberry. Might mix some Melot with some more..Having problems posting pic...But can see my cellar in my Gallery..Trying it again:

That's awesome. To have that much blackberry wine in primary is amazing to me! I'll be lucky to make 5 gallons this year. That's a beautiful cellar.

I have to say that I am honestly jealous of such a large/beautiful cellar with such a large compacity! I hope to be there some days myself.

Thanks for your help in the past Yopper. Good advice on backweeting and dealing with head space issues in past... The Blackberrry wine is a good deal for me. There is this Farmer down the street where I live. I give him half the wine produced and his farm labors pick the berries then put the "hulls" (berries that are off color) into the farms walk in cooler and I pick them up..Oh yea give the Lutheran Church I go to 7 gal each year also for communion...Lets hope Jesus Knows my name...
