Winemaking for Mere Mortals!

March 13, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Pennsylvania Wine Society

On Sunday, March 13th at 3:30 pm Eastern (New York) Time, the Pennsylvania Wine Society will feature Virtual Wine Education event on winemaking. But this segment will be a departure from the programs you have come to know from the PWS. It will be a one-hour overview of winemaking at home, as performed by award-winning amateur winemaker Kevin Donnelly.

It discusses grape varietals, fruit wine (“country wine”) options, the equipment needed, the basic chemistry involved, and winemaking procedures. During this segment, Kevin will demonstrate how people at home can emulate the “big guys” at commercial wineries, resulting in high quality wines that are often as good as, or even superior to, the quality of commercial wines.

Kevin will discuss costs involved, starting as low as $300, and how you can grow your hobby as your interest and proficiency grows.

This is a great introduction to a centuries old tradition that will show you how you can get involved in becoming a bona fide Winemaker of quality wines that you would be proud to serve to your family and friends!

Kevin Donnelly has been a home winemaker since 2003, and consistently wines multiple awards from various Home Wine Competitions, including 2018 Best of Show “Golden Bear” award from the California State Fair. Kevin has been the chairman of the OC Fair’s Home Wine Competition for five years and continues as a board member of the Orange County Wine Society in California.

Please join us on Sunday, March 13th at 3:30 pm Eastern (New York) Time to take in this feature. It is sure to be enjoyable and informative!
