Want to go to a Fruit Wine Making Class?
This is the 3rd year that this class has been taught by Judy Pinegar. It lasts maybe 3 – 3 1/2 hours, we start at 10 AM and end with tasting fruit wines with some food (TBD by consensus of attendees) The date will be Saturday July 11, 2020
There is a lecture session with lots of tips on fruit wine, with handouts to take home including many fruit wine recipes. Then we will begin making apricot wine with some luscious apricots that I will have already frozen to break the cell walls. We will then move to racking, then filtering and bottling some fruit wine to take home.
Because of Covid 19 I am limiting it to six (possibly 8) people. The class will be socially distanced, but please bring a mask to use when doing the “hands on” lessons. (I will have gloves, and actually masks too if needed)

This Hobby Vineyard is in Serrano, El Dorado at 1300 ft elevation. Miriam writes: We have about 75 vines. The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard is about 10 years old and we have been harvesting it for 5 years. The grapes make wonderful wine. And this year’s grapes are better than ever. Our problem is that this year my husband who manages the vineyard and winemaking efforts has health issues and will not be able to do the harvest. We would like to offer the crop for harvesting and sale, and you can even use our processing equipment for free! Call Miriam Satin at (916)-932-4542. Or contact at: firstname.lastname@example.org

For our July 17th general meeting we will be sharing our Gadgets and Gizmos. So our Vice President would like to have a good showing of these, for instance she uses a giant potato masher for her punch down tool, which she purchased at the restaurant supply store on Arden Way.
So everyone think about the gadgets you have come up with or made and bring them to the July meeting to help other winemakers learn! We will have the long tables set up around the perimeter of the room for displaying these items and round tables in the center for members.
Also it will be a meeting to bring your excess wines and trade it for another person’s wines, trade yours for a varietal you don’t make… easy, bottle for bottle!
