Whether your harvest has yet to start, or are in the middle of fermentation. or just pressed your batch, don’t miss this Wednesday’s (September 16) meeting on fermentation practices to get you the results you want. John Troiano, winemaker and co-owner of Wreckless Blenders in Carmichael spends the evening with us talking about successful fermentation practices. He’ll also answer your questions about fermentations – primary or secondary/malo-lactic conversion. John started out as a home winemakers (a former SHW member) so he’s aware of small batch fermentations.
