NEW for 2017 - Advanced Grape Wine Making Class

We are excited to have Brian Tansy of Olequa Cellars teaching this new 4-hour class that covers all steps that turn wine grapes into high quality wine:  Designing, Harvesting, Wine Chemistry, Measuring, Fermenting, Quality Control, Aging, Filtering and Bottling. 

A basic understanding of the winemaking process is required, prospective students should have made at least one batch of grape wine prior to signing up for this class.   This class will NOT teach how to make wine from backyard fruit like blackberrys or Raspberrys, AND it will not discuss how to make wine from table grapes like Concord.

Brian will discuss the science behind successful grape winemaking,  along with a special emphasis on controlling quality throughout the process.  Questions are encouraged throughout the class.
