BB222) The Art of Winemaking - Red Wine

A hands-on winemaking experience for the wine enthusiast! Delight in the experience of hand crafting your very own red wine using premium wine grapes from California. Use professional winery equipment to crush and press your grapes. Learn how to rack and remove lees (sediment) from a barrel of wine. Bottle and label your wine with your personalized labels. Each participant takes home 1 case of their own privately labeled wine. The wine varietal to be made is dependent on the grape harvest schedule (determined by Mother Nature). Participants should wear dark clothes and non-slip shoes that they don’t mind getting dirty to their sessions. Must be 21 years of age or older to register for this course. Class size limited to 20 students.
