Intermediate Winemaking Courses
Have you ever considered becoming a winemaker? Our Winemaking for Beginners or Intermediate Winemaking courses are both perfect for getting your feet wet, without the mess of having to stomp grapes!
In these introductory courses, wine lovers will be placed into groups with other first-time winemakers to learn the ins and outs of the winemaking process. Aspiring winemakers learn how to make wine by assembling with fellow enthusiasts for 4 fun hands-on lessons lead by the Make Wine With Us owners, who are American Wine Society-certified judges, and their knowledgeable staff. Winemakers can enjoy the fruits of their labor 9 months later when they take home their own cases of wine that they made right here at our winemaking facility.
