NOTE: The “Hands-On” Class will be available at harvest (Mother Nature picks the dates) and there will be a handful of varietals to choose from.
- We have to wait for the grower to set the pricing, but our 2015 pricing was: 100 lbs. for $150 which includes pick up, delivery, crush, de-stem, press … Gives you an opportunity to put what you’ve learned to work. 100 lbs will make about 6 gallons of wine which will give you about 30 bottles.
- SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:
- Options to participate in “Hands-On” Wine Making, both small and large batch to be discussed prior to or during class, with a commitment from those interested AS SOON AS POSSIBLE due to the need to secure grapes from growers.
- The sooner the request to secure grapes, the better your chance of availability. Once again, CALL NOW to Reserve Your Seat: 818.844.4000 or email: email@example.com
