These will all be Saturday afternoon events beginning at 1:00 pm. If there's enough interest for a second group, they will start at 3:00 pm.
If you plan on attending any of the Saturday wine making sessions, please RSVP. Due to the limited seating, I really need to know how many are coming so that I can keep each group at a manageable size.
April 29th Last of the Summer Wines PLUS Our April 1 st Summer Wine Making session was so crowded that I'm going to give everyone who couldn't make it over, one more chance. We'll be making Exotic Fruit White Zinfandel, Apricot/Peach Chardonnay, Black Raspberry Merlot, and Symphony. The first three will be ready by the end of June, leaving plenty of time for Summer enjoyment.
PLUS - We'll be making two new wines to our inventory: Australian Shiraz and Sonoma Valley UnOaked Chardonnay.
June 8 th French Wines
June 17 th Dessert Wines
We'll be making Sherry, Port, or Ice Wine. Be sure to reserve your spot. July 8 th French Reds Celebrate Bastille Day a few days early by making Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Vieux Chateau du Roi. Viva La France!
August 12 th French Whites
Continuing with the French tradition, you'll be able to make Chablis, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. Three great whites!
At the Winery:
The wine cellar is basically done. The fermentation room was operational last September. Shelves are now up. The sink's been installed. And the cellar has been rearranged umpteen times to get the maximum seating while trying to retain its rustic charm. It's been fun!
Construction on the new pergola has begun. Actually, it been the digging out of the driveway to make room for the pergola that's begun. April and May will be busy times outdoors. I look forward to having you all over to have a glass of wine under the pergola once it's up.
Please spread the word about Vines To Wines.
Thanks for all your support.
