April 17, 2019 General Meeting Program

April 17, 2019  General Meeting Program

Round Table Red Wine Evaluation:  Join your fellow home winemakers on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 7 pm for our Monthly Program upstairs at the Turn Verein located at 3349 J Street in Sacramento. There is additional parking in the back.

We will be evaluating reds, so everyone needs to bring a bottle of red wine, with preference for this year’s wine. This can be a split bottle if a new wine, or if you don’t have any this year’s wine bring an older one or a store bought wine is fine. We will be doing round table tasting focusing on the competition judging sheet. This will be educational and a lot of fun for everyone. Your wine will be poured for members at your table for evaluation, after the leader of the group pours their own wine and you all evaluate it with the judging sheets…

Bring 2 wine glasses for your use at the meeting. Your help in setting up and cleaning up at meetings is appreciated. Contact Vice President Terry Piazza-Perham if you have program questions: or 916 806-1621.

Need a Refurbished 60 gal French Wine Barrel from reWine?

Club Member Bill Kemper wants one and is looking for others to go in on the deal as the company wants to sell a number of them to afford the sales tax in California. In the past they have been about $325 each (actual price will be determined by the number of barrels ordered,
and whether the owner has enough barrels to deliver them himself, or whether we have to pay shipping for the barrels.

Bill intends to discuss this further with the owner of ReWine at the Unified Grape and Wine Symposium this week. If you are interested in getting in on this buy, contact Bill at the contact info below, he will co-ordinate the order.
