At First Crush in Templeton

11:00am-1:00pm – $25

Another return-by-demand feature from last year’s festival, the winemaker symposium for serious aspiring and beginning winemakers — and those who simply want to learn more about the nitty-gritty of the winemaking process. These popular seminars are a “must” for those wishing to learn the actual requirements for making your first wine or improving upon your past efforts.  If you have any interest at all in making your own wine (or are already doing so) this is a tremendous opportunity to get serious mentoring from some of the industry’s best winemakers. More details to come, but rest assured these seminars are golden. We ALWAYS take notes.
