Otherwise known as the garage :iconbiggrin: starting the country wine season today with two gallons of Elderberry and bramble wine,
we have a couple of gallons of chardonnay just bottled, a gallon of rhubarb from the garden ready to rack and a couple of gallons of blackcurrant wine just maturing in the bottles.
tomorrow i'm making a gallon of Sloe Vodka that i foraged a few days ago that have been rested in the freezer.

Chuckled at the title. On another forum the cellar is where the moderators go to confer upon suspicious posters - over tea and biscuits of course.

That looks like a great set up, Russ. If only I had a garage, or a cellar for that matter.
