I would like to ask a question to anyone who is an expert on wine making. The question is simply, "What grapes do I get?"
My little venture is that I want to make a family heirloom of vintage brandi. I grew up making muscadine wine, but I don't think that they would fit the bill. I want to make about 10 barrels of a VERY FINE and VERY BOLD wine. Then distill it to the proper levels and put it in casks made of the finest woods. After about 15 to 20 years, I want to bottle it and attach a simple letter to each bottle. The letters would be addressed to verious decendants. ie...children, grand children, great grandchildren...the list goes on. The would just describe the the way the world is today and tell a little about their ancestry.
Money is no issue in this venture and I would like some feedback on the best way to do it...Thank You for your time and consideration.
P.S.-I would like the end product to be a reflection of my personality. Stubborn, strong, bold, refined....OLD SCHOOL!!!
