Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Club
Wine Event: Preparing for the 2014 Vintage, by Steve Foisie

Date: August 12th, Tuesday

Time:  6:30 PM

Location:  Total Wines & More in Bellevue.  699 120th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98005

Please join the BEWBC for a presentation and conversation on preparing for the 2014 vintage. As some of you may have learned, this year is proving to be very similar to the 2013 vintage – the warmest vintage on record for WA State. (See the club’s home page for links to more information about WA heat units.) Warm temperatures can result unbalanced must.

We’ll discuss how to make appropriate adjustments to grape must to ensure clean and complete fermentation as well as how to apply nitrogen assessments (YAN/FAN) on grape juice to assist in proper nutrient adjustments. We’ll also discus equipment requirements and preparation.

In addition, Steve will also provide an overview of the Fundamentals of Winemaking class being offered later in the month.

BEWBC members and guests are invited to attend.

John Olsen's Alia Winery makes the news...

Recent article posted in the Tribune about club member John Olsen's winery.


Home winery making it big as part of burgeoning Snohomish wine industry

SNOHOMISH - The strong wine community in Snohomish is clear, but the journey to producing wine on a commercial scale is something few fully know.

For John and Kathy Olsen of ALIA Wines, what began as a wine-making hobby morphed into a lucrative passion that has been 20 years in the making.

The Olsens make and sell wine out of their shop-garage, which is not even 30 feet from their house in the unincorporated county area. A path of stepping stones marks the way between the two structures, and upon walking through the first threshold, one is greeted with an information table about their winery and two roomfulls of wine barrels. One's scent and taste are immediately activated by their commanding occupancy, but the scent is not quite "wine-ish" — it's fermenting wine grapes and grape skins. The meeting room and office are upstairs, with well-applied paint, décor and space.

Time to order grapes for the 2014 harvest!!!
