We have taken the wine making process and broken it down for you the easiest way possible! Each of the 3 days focuses on a certain stage of the wine making process. We will be taking a few 6-gallon wine kits we sell here at the store and going through each individual step with you in depth. The schedule of what you will be learning by day is as follows:
