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 educational, competitive, and social meetings. SHW incorporated in 1973 and is the oldest continuous operating home winemaking club west of the Rockies.
Monthly club meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month upstairs at the Sacramento Turn Verein Hall on 3349 J Street and usually start at 7:00 p.m. Other SHW events include field trips, winery tours, and judging events, such as the annual SHW Jubilee Home Winemaking Competition. See the Calendar of Events button for information on the current club activities.
We’re a group of people who are passionate about wine and winemaking. Some of us have been making wine for a long time, some of us will have our first vintage this harvest. Not everyone in SHW makes wine but are members to enhance wine and winemaking 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.
