Joy of Home WinemakingThe Joy of Home Winemaking: Create Your Own Vintage Wine

Submitter: This gross specimen comes from my local library. It clearly has been used in the wine making process. Look at those stains! I know wine should age, but I am not sure this is what they had in mind.

Holly: Age the wine, not the library collection. This can be weeded on condition if nothing else!

  • Illustrations come into focus after a glass of homemade wine…

  • They got kids stomping grapes to make an adult beverage? I don’t know which is more gross, the stains on the pages or the thought of drinking something that lots of little feet have squished into a pulp.

  • It looks like a wine sweat shop. Child Labor Laws, people!

  • The title and author on the cover is unreadable. Did the font founder sample the product a little too much?

    • I know! I really couldn’t figure out what it was supposed to say. I think that must be a classic 1970 era font.
      (Lurked the site for a while now and love it!)

  • I just realized those kids are making wine in the tub. Eww. Pubic hair and soap scum in wine? (Let’s face it, no matter how well you clean the tub it’ll still have residue.) No thanks!

  • Those large “gallon size jugs” on the cover illustration remind me of the Gallo Hearty Burgandy jugs I used to see in my neighbors garage before advent of boxed wine.

  • I think whoever came up with that font on the cover had too much wine.

  • What’s wrong with Chateau Le Feet?
