Today, I stopped by Davenport Orchards & Winery today to pick up a few bottles of locally produced wine.
I owe a lot of Davenport. It is the first winery tour I ever took and strangely enough, I think I still have a bottle of apple wine I purchased that day stored in my under counter wine cooler.
I have moved on to new liquid loves, but every year I make it back to pick up a little something. For the past two years, it’s been apple wine. Not only is it delicious, but they are always out of what I really want: their watermelon wine.
Not this year! This year they had several cases of it. Which could only mean that either I had come at a different time of the year, they had made more of it, or they had sold less of it. I think they have only had it three years, so it is likely they are finally ramping up the production, although given the economy, it is quite possible that they are selling less.
Still, I was happy that I finally got to try it.
Watermelon Wine in Review
Well, sadly, all in all, watermelon wine is nothing to write home about (though strangely it is something to write a blog post about. Oh well.) Honestly, I think they cut the watermelon down too far because it tasted like rind. Which is never good.
Really, that’s pretty much all I have to say about it. It was not near sweet enough and it tasted green. I was saddened, because I figured I’d be taking a small loan out to buy their entire supply and spending the next month drunkenly blogging about watermelon wine recipes.
Still, I didn’t come away totally empty handed. More on that tomorrow.
But until then, please has anyone else had watermelon wine? Leave me a comment and tell me your experience?

Hi, Just found your blog surfing on the internet! I am too much interested in the information like you are providing. Why you do not write a new ebook and publish it by collecting more information on this topic. NO! Do not take me wrong! I am not a publisher. Ha! Ha! Ha! You have written in a detailed manner that’s why I am asking you about the ebooks. Have you ever thought of any type of ebook and in its business. It is a really hardwork to create a blog like yours and to maintain it. But you have done really a great job. Congrates! I have few questions. Do you think that blogs are better than ebooks for providing information and making money. I Just take the ebooks as products. I have never tried to write any ebook and to do any sort of business. If I say something about my website here, then you will consider this comment as a spam and NO One like that. But would like to say, that while selling FREE EBOOKS I have made such a huge amount, just in few days, that you will be amazed! If you visit my website (by clicking on my name in this comment) then you are bound to be surprised. I am sure this is a new technique of selling, I have found over the net. But lets talk about writing ebooks and providing unique information to the internet community, have you ever tried writing anything and publishing it? Do you also sell ebooks? What is your experience? I am interested in knowing about it or your experiments? Waiting for reply – Thanks, Regards
