It’s fall and the grapes are ripening – time to make your own wine! Taught by award-winning winemaker Martha Gioumousis, this class teaches you the basics of home winemaking—for the beginner or advanced amateur winemaker. The class will include the basics of wine tasting, plus all you need to know to make wine at home, equipment and supplies needed, yeast choices, problem solving, the importance of record keeping, plus aging, finishing and bottling wine. While not a hands-on class, there will be examples of wine grape juice from a local vineyard.
