Fundamentals of Wine Making Class - 2016 Syrah

Saturday, August 20th & 27th, 2016

9:30 am to 2:00 pm

In cooperation with Larry's Brewing Supply, the Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Makers Club (BEWBC) is once again offering an introduction to winemaking class.

This year the class will focus on red wine making with an emphasis on dry red wine made from Syrah grapes. Topics discussed include the principal steps and decisions required to make quality red wine, essential equipment, sanitation, and testing procedures. No experience in winemaking is necessary.

The program is taught over three days.  Day 1 and 2 (Saturday 8/20 and 8/27) is devoted to wine making theory. Day 3, which will be scheduled post fermentation, will focus on testing and evaluating the student's wine. In addition, the instructor will provide hands-on instruction during grape crushing and pressing, and will assist with post fermentation and pre-bottling decisions.

Students will have an opportunity to purchase quality, WA grapes and proceed through the entire winemaking process in parallel with other's in the class.

Admission for the class is $25 to cover classroom materials and juice/wine testing expenses. The cost of grapes is not included in class fee.

Space in the class is very limited. Enrollment remains open through July 31.

Students interested in attending the class are encouraged to read beforehand, an introductory wine making book such as:

· Techniques in Home Winemaking by Daniel Pambianchi

· Home Winemaking Step by Step  by Jon Iverson

For more information and to reserve a seat in the class, contact Steve Foisie: smfoisie@gmail

Website Calendar Experiencing Technical Difficulties

The club website is currently having problems with the calendar and will continue to do so until it is upgraded (work is in progress).  In the meantime, remember that every third Friday is a joint beer meeting with the Impaling Alers homebrew club at Larry's Brewing Supply.  Wine meetings will be posted on the website and we will make an effort to contact registered members about the event.  As a reminder, don't forget to renew your membership for 2015!
