Wine Making – Everything You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid to Ask

One of the favorite beverages for many Vagabonds is WINE. Yes, WINE. But just saying wine is not enough for most wine drinkers. It’s a matter of which wine. And there are so, so many. To tell us more about the variety of wines and wine making, we have a top authority on wine in this area, Stephen Franzoi, who will talk about the difference between white and red grapes in winemaking, briefly discuss grapes on the vine and their development in the field, the process of fermentation and turning grapes into wine including the bulk aging process, and then talk about the most common types of wine and encourage questions throughout his presentation. So don’t miss this highly informative and helpful Roundtable. Questions? Ron Sonntag, 414-788-4907 or ron@rspr.com. Dinner will be served from 5 pm, so eat while listening.Questions?
