In order to keeping brewing beer I need to make wine as well to keep the other half happy. Is there a good site or even past posts in here to help me get started?

This site has a lot of good information.

I would start with a Kit like a Winexpert kit. About $60 to $70 will make a decent wine that you can drink fairly quick (some of the more expensive kits make better wine but they need to age.

This is a great site about wine making.

There is a wine specific forum here on HBT that I'm sure has loads of info.
I like a little more beer in my beer.

Ooh nice, I didn't know about the winemakingtalk site. Going to be starting a few as well and was using the jackkeller site among others and earlier posts.

Search around this forum for alot of information. I might suggest the Skeeter Pee for a good starter in to the wine world. While you research, collect info/ideas, and decide what you want to do.
Women are like yeast... You gotta keep them at the right temperature if you want to get anything out of them!
