While i've not had your breadth of experience, I have had an occasion once where a man from Argentina brought a bottle of his own wine from his vineyard in Argentina. It was a 40th anniversary, so we just charged him a nominal corkage fee (TABC laws and whatnot). He shared a tasting portion with me....and i likely would hae been happy paying $10-$20 for it. A nice tart red, which is unusual for me. Home made wine is rarely tart, almost always salty/acidic or sweet. But never the complexity of tart.
But I agree: home made wines are a fun hobby, but you won't impress a sommalier with it.
