Introduction to Wine Making with William Nesto, MW

Description

Students will learn how to ferment, mature, and bottle wine at the Boston Winery facility in Dorchester, Mass. Hands-on experience will accompany lectures about harvest parameters, crushing and maceration, fermentation, maturation, bottling, labeling, and storage. Students will document and present their progress as they navigate the exciting and sometimes unpredictable art and science of vinification. After the final class, Boston Winery will continue to mature and then bottle student wines. Students will have the opportunity to check on wine as it matures, and acquire finished wine post-bottling. Applicants must complete a brief application, available at bu.edu/foodandwine, or by calling 617-353-9852.
