    Winemaking Class

    (8)
    How many times have you been to Napa Valley or Sonoma County? Forget about those long flights and expensive trips because now, you can learn to make your very own wine, locally. During this class, learn all about the winemaking process, from selecting the proper grapes, all the way to bottling and labeling. In the first of this two session class, you will discover various approaches and techniques to this art form, as well as create 24-28 bottles of your very own wine. Once your wine ferments, you'll return and fine tune your product by balancing, stabilizing, and adjusting the tannin and sugar levels of your vino. Finally bottle, cork, and label your final product so that it's ready to break out at your next party and impress all your guests. Stop for a second and smell the roses -- or grapes -- because the next world-famous vino could be right under your nose.
