The Sacramento Home Winemakers Club (SHW) is a volunteer non-profit organization. The goal 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 at the Sacramento Turn Verein Hall on 3349 J Street and usually start at 7:00 p.m. Other events sponsored by the SHW are field trips, winery tours, and judging events, such as the annual SHW Jubilee Home Winemaking Competition. See the Next Meeting or 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 home vineyards or grow commercially. We make wine in groups or individually. Some of us don’t make wine and are here to further their wine appreciation knowledge.
If you’ve wanted to learn to make wine or make better wine or just hang with fellow winemakers, come to our monthly meetings and see what we’re about. Contact membership co-chairs Fred Millar at firstname.lastname@example.org and 916 576-9596, and Gin Yang at email@example.com and 916 217-0294.
