WINEMAKING COURSE - From The Vine to Your Table
MARCH 2018 CLASS SESSION (Stella Link Location)
De-mystify the winemaking process by making your own personal vintages. Winemaking dates back thousands of years and now more and more Texans are getting into the spirit of the grape (and blackberry, peach, strawberry, apple, honey, etc.). In this class you will produce three batches of wine 1) an easy ingredient kit batch, 2) a mead (honey wine), & 3) a "scratch" wine from grapes. The proper methods of using a hydrometer, conducting an acid titration test will be covered, along with fortifying sherries and ports. Get a little sticky by crushing real fruit to make a "scratch" recipe. Note: You must be at least 21 years old to enroll in this class.
