First Crush

After last year's cider making experiment, Eric decided to try his hand at making his own wine. His co-worker has a grapevine of some sort of wine grape and when Eric expressed an interest in making wine from his grapes, a giant box of grapes appeared on his desk. Without access to a press, we went with the old fashioned method using people power to crush the grapes. Lillian had great fun stomping on grapes while Nathaniel crawled around. I will note that we did ask Lillian to clean her feet before the crushing began, but the true cleanliness of those feet will never be known. Also only a small amount of dog poop was consumed in the process, thankfully none ended up in the crushed grapes.
