Vermont Winemakers Workshop

This Workshop is Now Full

The Residence at Quarry Hill, 465 Quarry Hill Road, South Burlington
Registration Required - Please Register by Wednesday, Nov. 29th 
Chris Gerling of Cornell Extension will be leading a workshop for winemakers on how to set up systems of peer-to-peer sensory evaluation for their wines. He will be joined by Peter Bell of Fox Run Vineyards and Dave Breeden of Sheldrake Point Winery. 
This workshop will address not only systems for evaluating wine, but the structure that has worked in New York for hosting useful, constructive evaluation sessions between winemaking colleagues. We will be tasting wine from Vermont attendees for evaluations during the workshop (see registration for details if you would like your wine to be tasted). 
This workshop is hosted by the Vermont Fresh Network and Vermont Grape & Wine Council using a Specialty Crop Block Grant. 
The fees to participate are:

  • VT Grape & Wine Council Members and Vermont Fresh Network Members: 
    • $15 for the first person from your winery
    • $5 for each additional staff
  • Non-Members: $20
