Welcome to Sacramento Home Winemakers!
The Sacramento Home Winemakers Club (SHW) is a volunteer non-profit organization. The mission of the club is to promote the art and science of winemaking through education, competitions, and social meetings. SHW incorporated in 1973 and is the oldest continuous operating home winemaking club west of the Rockies.
Monthly club meetings start at 7 PM (unless otherwise noted) on the third Wednesday of the month upstairs at the Sacramento Turn Verein Hall located at 3349 J Street. In addition to the Club’s monthly meetings are educational field trips, winery tours, and demonstrations. See Calendar of Events for information on the current club activities.
We’re a group of people who are crazy about winemaking and wines. Some of us are long-time winemakers, many of us will make wine for the first time this harvest. Some of us probably won’t make wines – we’re there to enhance our wine and wine making knowledge.
If you’ve wanted to learn to make wine or make better wine or just hang with fellow winemakers and wine enthusiasts, come to our monthly meetings and see what we’re about.
