I pulled an old 4L bottle from the basement as we were cleaning it out for some new tennants yesterday. I asked my grandfather what was in it, and he said it was wine that he bottled YEARS ago, and that it had to be at least 20 years old. He also said that it could be from the last time he pressed 50 gallons back in 1958, but it's unknown.
I sterilized the bottle and began filtering it and placing it into smaller bottles after I checked the wine with a hydrometer. It measured out right, and has a relative alcohol content of 14 percent. I pulled a bit out to give it a nice smell, and oh god did it smell absolutely AMAZING. The taste was even better.
We bottled 'em up, corked them, and now they are sitting in my fridge for labeling later on.
I'll start making wine soon, and I have a cellar that is just PERFECT for wine-making, as it's about 50-60 degrees all the time down there.
