In this two part class (on October 28 and November 4), students will learn how to make Muscadine wine. Muscadine is a species of grape which is native to the Southeastern United States. Most notably, St. Augustine, Florida is where it is thought the wine began its history. The grapes thrive in warm, humid climates and are full of nutritious antioxidants. Muscadine wine is considered a sweet and refreshing choice during the warm summer months.

Students will make 1 gallon of muscadine wine starting with whole fruit. In the first class, you will learn how to prepare the fruit and start the fermentation of your wine. You will learn how to sanitize your equipment, and test the acid and sugar levels of the juice. In the 2nd class, you will learn to “rack” your wine and how to prepare your wine for bottling at home. The techniques you will learn in this class will prepare you so you will be able to make wine at home out of your choice of fruit.

This is class 21 and up only.

Registration closes on October 21.
