Home grown wine review – with special guest Astrid Braunschmidt



The Dork, Rod Phillips, reviews two home made wines. Last fall, co-host Ryan Price started making wine from his backyard blackberries and purple plums. It’s now bottled and he saved the first tasting for this show.

And. we found someone else who had the same adventure! CFAX and CTV Vancouver Island meteorologist Astrid Braunschmidt made wine out of her greengage plums.

In this episode, we talk about the different methods used to home brew these wines and the results.
