Fundamentals of Wine Making Class

Saturday, August 26, 2017

9:00 am to 3:00 pm

The Boeing Employees Wine and Beermaking Club (BEWBC) is once again offering an introduction to winemaking class.

This is a multi-part program during which we will review and discuss the principal steps and decisions required to make quality red wine. The class will meet again when the grapes are delivered and crushed and again when the grapes are pressed. In addition there is a post-fermentation follow-up class focusing on the student’s wine in preparation for bottling.

Students will have the opportunity to purchase quality WA grapes and proceed through the entire winemaking process in parallel with other’s in the class. The instructor will take you through the crushing and fermentation process and help you with post fermentation pre-bottling decisions.

Admission for the class is $40 which includes many of the materials needed to get your fermentation properly underway. Please note though, that the cost of grapes (typically around $140) is not included in the class fee. Space is limited so act quickly to reserve a spot.
