Quarantine Boredom Creativity

SHW member Jim Margolis has been busy at home this spring.  Below are his descriptions of a couple of winemaker essentials for the home winery.

First picture is a Winemaker’s tool rack. It is an extension of Hydrometer holder that was in the WineMakers magazine.

This will be my 4th publication with them.
