Vini 101: An Introduction to Vinification/Winemaking
As was discussed in Viti 101, wine is a product of many influences, particularly those that happen in the vineyard. However, grape growing is only half the story.
In this webinar, we will explore the various practices and procedures that take place once the grapes arrive at the winery such as sorting, crushing, fermentation, must adjustment, winemaking vessels, post-fermentation options and aging.
PLEASE NOTE: While this webinar is open to all Society members in good standing, it is especially geared for novice enthusiasts and newcomers to the wine industry and is highly recommended for Study Immersion Trip Participants.
