Winemaking Information Session, with Bill Nesto and Jacquelyn Groeper
Bill Nesto, Master of Wine, and winemaker Jacquelyn Groeper, CSW, preview the hands-on winemaking course they plan to co-teach in the fall of 2017. Lectures will offer students insight into how to assess harvesting parameters; process and vinify grapes; and mature, chemically analyze, stabilize, bottle, and label the resulting wine. Students will also make wine in collaboration with teachers. The course is designed to teach students how to make quality artisanal wines for home use and will be a knowledge base for those who wish to pursue subsequent enological studies. Attendees can sample wines made in that course.
