Want to try something new? Judy Pinegar is teaching a Fruit Wine Making class. The class is lecture for the basic steps and then she’ll talk about important tools and tricks of the trade.

Following that, there will be several rotating hands-on instructions for: 1) fruit processing for wine making; 2) racking fruit wine; 3) sweetening, stabilizing and bottling fruit wine; and 4) enjoying a potluck with fruit wines (bring your own if you have any).

The class is located in Judy’s air-conditioned barn in Loomis on Saturday, July 20. Class starts at 10:30 AM and ends at 12:30 or 1:00 PM. Bring something to share for the potluck.  There’s no cost for the class but you must be a Club member. Participation is limited. Call 916-224-6742 to register and for address.

“Remember making fruit wine is not as easy as regular grape wine, it truly is a labor of love and a lot of work, but oooh the results!!” — Judy Pinegar
