Congrats to the Winemaking 101 Class of 2022! Twenty-four “soon to be wine makers and better wine makers” survived this summer’s 2-part Winemaking 101 workshop. The worst part? … the Chemistry! What’s pH again?? The best part(s)? … new friends, beautiful venue, delicious wines and foods, awesome WM 101 crew, the anticipation of the upcoming harvest. See you at the New Winemakers Group Crush!
