    Default anyone wants a sip of dominican wine?

    again, pichardo seems to be slacking off so i take a liberty to inform you of an amazing project: high quality wines made in DR.
    Proyecto agro turÝstico empieza a producir vinosáde alta calidad en RD - Hoy Digital

    they should consult my parents. they make great "wine" from the grapes grown in their garden in poland. together, they will conquer the world.

    I'll go with the "Polak Red" for the wine, and the "Brugal White" for the RUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting. I was under the impression that a tropical climate is not suitable for growing the proper types of grapes used to make fine wines.

    Most of the wine that I make at home is made with honey (mead) rather than grapes .... but Dominican wine sounds interesting. I'll have to try some now.

    Wine production has never stopped in DR:

    Yes but he imported his juice and that was a folly with the laws here. I know of nowhere that grapes can be "adapted" to make a fine wine in a tropical country. Good luck is needed indeed.

    I have made my own wine here using carambola (star fruit). Turned out pretty good too......starting another batch in a couple of weeks.
    As long as no Dominicans are involved in the fermentation stage, the product should turn out pretty good.......if they do, their product will turn out very very sweet (as Dominicans think there is no such thing as too much sugar).......like Gitano or La Fuerza....aka diesel......
