October 1 – 6:30p set up/7p Pot Luck – Topics are secondary fermentation, Malolactic Fermentation (MLF), testing for MLF, aging and oak additions. The theme is Octoberfest and the wine theme is Merlot. Bring a bottle of Merlot to share.
First up, if you’re new to wine or home winemaking, don’t feel intimidated. We’re a pretty friendly bunch. Our Summer club meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at The Woodland Hills Home Wine, Beer and Cheesemaking Shop, 22836 Ventura Blvd, Woodland Hills, CA 91364, (818) 884-8586. It’s a potluck and we usually have a food theme, so bring a dish to share and a bottle or two of wine, homemade or commercial. We usually have a speaker and/or a tasting. Either way, if you’ve got some wine that isn’t tasting quite the way you think it should, feel free to bring some along and let our wine gurus help you figure out what’s going on with it.
