Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning welcomes Nancy Koziol and Kaiya Kirk of couch + cork to lead this wine tasting class. While wine, at its core, is simply fermented grape juice, it is so much more. This talk explores the full experience of winemaking. First, we will learn about viticulture: the annual life of a vine, decisions that growers make, challenges during the growing season, and the harvesting process. Next, we will learn about viniculture: the steps to making still and sparkling wines including the myriad choices winemakers make, how wine laws dictate everything down to the label, and what happens between harvest and getting in your glass. Enjoy tasting pours (and nibbles) as we go through these fascinating processes complete with visual aids. Registration is $60 per person in advance.
