May 12th Virtual Meeting Program

What do you do when a wine just isn’t right? Too much acid, not sweet enough, flavor is flat, or flavor is too much? You can add sugar or tannin, but how much? You can blend wines that have different characteristics, but which qualities and in what proportion? Bench trials are the fun and necessary answer to these questions. Greg Paczkowski will do a bench trial on tannins, and Brad Harford will do one on blending two different wines. Members look for your Zoom access email to attend.
