Register now!

In beautifully renovated Stocking Hall is a winemaker's treasure: a new state-of-the-art teaching winery with devices ranging from grape presses to hydrometers. In this sunlit facility, Kathy Arnink, Cornell oenologist, will lead our class in winemaking, designed for novices who wish to enrich their knowledge of wine and those who've dreamed of making their own. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and, hands on, enjoy every step of the process: pressing the grapes, analyzing juices, adding yeast, adjusting sugar and acid, mastering microbes (the good, the bad, and the ugly), and monitoring various stages of fermentation. You'll learn to clarify, stabilize, mature, and blend the wines, tasting the "fruits" of your labor at every stage. No grape stomping required.
