What does “sur lies” aging really means? What is “malolactic fermentation”? Do you know that there is methoxypyrazine in your Merlot? What glue is used to hold barrel staves together? Where does the color of a red wine come from? Hint: Not the juice!
If these and other winemaking questions keep you up at night, then this seminar is for you! Estate Winemaker Michael Westrick and Estate Viticulturist Natalie Birch will take you through each step of the pruning and winemaking processes, (complete with wine tasting), making you a vineyard and winemaking genius in just 3 hours! And your final test as winemaker will be to practice making your own blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Will you be the next André Tchelistcheff?
