After introducing the science of winemaking, we’ll jump right into making a small batch of wine. Each participant will use wild fruits to make one gallon of wine starter (or “must”) for fermenting at home. Participants need to bring 3-5 pounds of fruit (preferably wild fruits such as mulberries or raspberries); for help with identifying and selecting fruit please contact Dave at (608) 934-1070. We'll supply a bucket, a fermentation lock, and tubing; you'll need a gallon glass jug, some sugar, and wine bottles back at home.
Actual costs of workshops are close to double our workshop fees. If you are able, please consider making an additional donation to help cover the full cost of your workshop and to provide scholarships for others.
