(MM#003) Introducing . . . The Wine Coop!

This post contains a great slideshow and the story of The Wine Coop so far.

As many of you now know, behind the scenes in the garage we have been making hobby wine for a number of years. Our production has slowly been increasing on us year after year. Timing couldn’t have been much better with the sale of my home and us out growing the garage. This led to a search for bigger more dedicated facility for us to continue exploring the side of the wine world that we are both so passionate about.

Around late January to early February of this year (2012) I was spending an afternoon at my parents house, when it dawned on me. The old chicken barn is still just sitting here! Rotting away, the building has been unused for a good number of years now. Continue reading

(MM#001) The Adventure Thus Far

In 2008, long before the launch of Mike Nierychlo ONLiNE, myself and my bro-in-law Mike Rathjen began our journey into winemaking. Being two guys who are uber passionate about all things wine, it only seamed fit to deepen our knowledge of the wine world by making the stuff. Through our experiences, successes and failures so far, we have gained a huge appreciation for what goes into a great bottle of wine. We have also learned that the more we learn, the less we feel like we know.

As our journey continues we are stoked to have you follow along with us and hopefully we can all learn something along the way. Welcome to our blog:  “The Wine Adventures of Mike & Mike.”

Check out our slideshow for a brief overview of our adventure thus far.
