Make Your Wine in Three Easy Two-Hour Sessions

Session I Begin Fermentation: You have selected your wine varietal or blend: Cabernet Sauvignon,Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Shiraz, Zinfandel… or, Red Blends. Frozen Grape Must has been thawed out for about one week. We are now ready to begin fermentation: We need to take measurements such as Specific Gravity, pH, Brix. Then we need to hydrate the specific yeast required for fermentation. Fermentation lasts 10-14 days… and entails the natural process of converting sugar to alcohol. Yes, you will do some wine analytics, learn about wines and winemaking, and experience a sampling of several wines!

Session II Press Grapes: Once we have completed primary fermentation (about two weeks), it is time to press the ‘grape must’ in order to leave behind all skins and seeds …and literally squeeze-out every ounce of wine we can. Every drop of wine is precious to us!  You will then transfer the wine to either glass, stainless steel or oak barrel storage to begin the process of secondary fermentation which will last about 2 to 3 months. Learn how to assess wines and sample several wines!  Note: Wine Racking is handled by GNB Staff as required. Your attendance is optional.

Session III Bottle and Label: At Grapes N’ Barrels, our primary focus is on the quality of the wine produced. The duration of barrel aging is dependent on the type of wine and those special characteristics we seek in the wine. As a general rule of thumb, most artisan wines can be bottled in about 8-10 months. Aging your ‘bottled wine’ is recommended as well, for it too will impact the personality of the wine.  Affix a personalized label to your wine… and enjoy. Salute!


Make the Winery Yours: When you book a ‘barrel quantity’ winemaking session with GNB, the winery is reserved for your group alone. You can make your session a festive winemaking party: Enjoy your favorite foods and wines in the company of friends and family!
