Winemaking, with Bill Nesto MW and Jacquelyn Groeper CSW
Students will learn how to ferment, mature, and bottle wine at Artis Winery in Pembroke, Mass. Hands-on experience will accompany lectures about harvest parameters, crushing and maceration, fermentation, maturation, bottling, labeling, and storage. Students will document their progress and report to the course instructors and their fellow student winemakers as they navigate the exciting and sometimes unpredictable art and science of vinification. After the 14th and final class, Artis Winery will continue to mature and then bottle wines which instructors and students have crafted. Students will have the opportunity to purchase finished wine post-bottling.
Please note that the first class will take place at 808 Commonwealth Avenue; subsequent classes will take place at Artis Winery.
Prerequisite: a passing grade in Wine Studies Level 2 or equivalent experience.
