We got carried away on our last batch and had to do both and I think its not only good but great. Add a little oak. Now you have a good wine, or even a great wine, its your taste that matters. WVMJ
Loved your elderberry farm. We planted four elderberries, the birds gave us quite a few more, and we abscond from the side of the road, by tying ribbons and sheer curtains over the "pre-berries". I learned about elderberries (jelly and uncle's wine) in my youth, in Michigan. Now I live in Southern Mississippi and no one here even knows about them and there are bazillions!!! Anyway, didn't mean to hijack a post, just thought I would let you know what a cool farm you have!
