Please see the link to April’s The Grapevine below.
Members’ 2013 red wines, non-Bordeaux varietals, will be evaluated at the April 16 meeting. Please bring two 750ml bottles clearly marked with the varietal and your name, and your winemaking notes. If you haven’t yet bottled, please do so without adding sulfites. No capsules, please. Check in with Cellarmaster Henry Wilkinson with your wines before the start of the program.
The evening’s evaluators are Joel Omhart, assistant winemaker with St. Amant Winery and Layne Montgomery with m2 wines.
Please bring 2 wine glasses for your own use. Thanks for helping clean up after the meeting. The April 16 meeting starts at 7PM upstairs at the Turn Verein located at 3349 J Street in midtown Sacramento.
We’re also accepting wine competition entries for the California State Fair Home Wine Competition and the Amador Winemaking Association-SHW Shootout. More information can be found in the April newsletter: GV April 2014.
