Education
Steve Foisie announces:  
After 43 years, this will be the last year that I will be offering a fundamentals in wine making class.
The class is tentatively scheduled for late August, 2018. More details to follow
Please note that I will not be available this harvest so for the class to be successful, I will need several mentors to work with the students through the crush, press, and post fermentation analysis.
It been a fun run, but it's time to hang up the purple shoes.
Mentors
We have mentors!  On this website, in the Members section, find the drop down for mentors.  You can send a message by double clicking the mentor’s highlighted name, where you’ll be directed to Messages.  These club members have volunteered to help you with your winemaking questions, and there is likely at least one who lives near you.
