Tin Lizzie Wineworks Calendar of Spring Events
Winemaking Session #3: Racking & Tasting Fall 2018 Wines: March 2 & 3, 2019, Sat & Sun 9-4 pm
It’s Mardi Gras time at the Wineworks! Let the good times roll! It’s time to rack and sample your wines from last fall. Even if you didn’t make wine last year, stop by and check out the fun and help us celebrate Mardi Gras! Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Intro to Wine Tasting Class: March 9, 2019, Saturday 1-3 pm
Due to illness and holidays and who knows what else, we’re holding another session of our most popular class: Intro to Wine Tasting. In this fun and informal class you’ll learn how to evaluate the basic attributes of wine with you senses of smell, taste and touch. This is a great class to learn the basics of wine tasting or brush up on your tasting skills.
Advanced Wine Tasting: Sensory Analysis: March 23, 2019, Saturday 1-4 pm
NEW CLASS! Have you always wanted to be one of those folks who can say, “I’m picking up a hint of cassis in this wine”? This class will start you on the path to being able to say stuff like that with confidence! In the Advanced Wine Tasting class we’ll dive deeper into the aromas and tastes associated with different types of wines. You’ll learn how to identify the specific smells and tastes of both red and white wines. You can take this class on its own, but the Intro class will be helpful.
Winemaking Session #4: Bottling Spring 2018 & Fall 2018 Whites: March 30 & 31, 2019, 10 am–2 pm
It’s bottling time at the Wineworks for our 2018 South American and South African wines and our Fall whites! There’s nothing more rewarding to a winemaker than the “thunk” of the cork going into the bottle…except maybe for the “pop” of it coming out! We’ll be bottling some really fine reds from below the equator and some fresh new whites for summer pool-side sipping. Even if you didn’t make any of these wines last year, stop by and check things out.
The Magic of Blending Wines Class: May 4, 2019, Saturday 1-3 pm
NEW CLASS! This is new course dedicated to all those folks who say to me, “I love red blends!” Well, here’s your chance to create your own special red blend. In this hands-on class you’ll learn about the magic of blending wines. And then you’ll get to experiment with blending several wines to create your own signature blend. Once you’ve created your own personal blend, you can actually make it with us in the fall!
Open House at the Wineworks: May 18, 2019, Saturday 11 am – 5 pm
OMG! Only four months to harvest! Time to visit the Wineworks and kick off another winemaking season! Stop by to see and taste what we’ve been up to and what we have planned for the new season. We’ll be open all day with food, refreshments and music, just waiting to talk with you about your winemaking dreams!
