Walton Wallow White takes first place at the Fair!

In the "other grape (red and white)" category, our Himrod grape wine received the blue ribbon! Our Drunken Marauder Mead (a sweet mead with 9.5% alcohol) received 2nd place (a sparkling mead got first and a pomegranate mead got third). Our Tomato Blight White Wine received 2nd in the fruit wine category (plum got first). Not bad for our first winemaking attempt with all produce from our farm/apiary or the neighbor's (with the exception of the tomoto wine's additional sugar).
