Join us for a very social & educational experience at Grape Expectations School of Wine and make a barrel of California Super Tuscan-Style Blend Wine. This red wine blend is produced from a combination of Sangiovese (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon(15%), Merlot(15%), and Syrah(5%). What is a Super Tuscan? “Super Tuscan” is a term used to describe red wines from Tuscany that may include the use of non-indigenous grapes, particularly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. This blend is one of our most popular wines. A great wine winner to begin your winemaker journey.
This 9-month process is anticipated to begin Sunday, October 13th, of 2019, at 5 PM with the grape crushing. (Starting date is subject to change due to the unpredictability of the harvest) The 3 remaining sessions are anticipated to be the press on Saturday, October 20th at 5 PM, Racking on a Saturday, in February at 5 PM, & final session will be a bottling & labeling session on a Saturday, in May at 5 pm. You will ‘graduate’ the winemaking sessions with a greater knowledge of wine, new friends, and, of course, one case* of your Super Tuscan Wine. (12 bottles)!
*Additional cases may be available for purchase if additional inventory is available when you sign-up & check out.
