Cellarmasters will be leaving the comforts of the Home Beer Wine and Cheesemaking Shop for the summer months to the Old Oak Winery space in Pasadena. Dave Lustig and Paul Overholt have extended the invitation to have the club meet at their place and we’ll take them up on it. But we will be back at the Shop on September 5th ready for harvest themed meetings and events onsite.
July and August meetings will be on the first Saturdays and will include a potluck lunch instead of potluck dinner but will otherwise look like a normal meeting with topics, guests and the food prize. So plan on coming out to the wilds of Pasadena on July 6 and August 3.
We have already confirmed our Yeast Etc. seminar on Saturday June 29th conducted by Scottlabs. This is an expanded version of the one hour evening presentations of years past that will incorporate yeast, ML, enzymes and whatever else Michael Jones feels like expounding about. It’s always fun, informative and will allow for advance planning for the upcoming harvest.
While July may feature our pre-bottling clinic (pending), August 3rd will showcase Tercero Wines and its owner Larry Schaffer. Tercero specializes in Rhone varietals and the tasting room is in Los Olivos. The website is http://tercerowines.com/
