Wine Making

Last year we made our own wine at The Brew Mentor.  It was the coolest thing ever!

For those new people, we made and bottled our own wine.  For $30 we got 4 bottles of wine and a wine glass.  Not too mention a couple of pot luck wine tasting events SO FUN!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND ON THIS DATE TO PARTICIPATE!  WE WILL SCHEDULE THE BOTTLING EVENT AT A LATER DATE!

I HAVE A COUNT OF 26 PEOPLE WHO HAVE RSVP'D "YES" IF YOU THINK THERE IS A POSSIBILITY YOU CANNOT FOLLOW THRU THEN PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 30TH SO THAT KITS AND BOTTLES CAN BE ORDERED.

PLEASE SEND YOUR $30 TO ME AT THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS VIA CHECK OR MONEY ORDER, or you can drop off at the same address.  (Gold Star Pawn Shop): (THERE WILL BE A $40 FEE IF A CHECK DOES NOT CLEAR)

HERE ARE THE WINE CHOICES...PLEASE CHOOSE ONE FROM EACH CATEGORY:

1-Australian Riverland Reserve: A stunningly unique blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard and Muscat varieties sourced from Australia’sRiverland region on the Murray River. The hot climate produces a wine offering a lively combination of rich ripe fruits, complementary acidity, and a full body, making this delicious white wine a 'must-try'.

Washington Riesling: A distinctive floral and green apple aroma mixed with mineral elements from its Washington vineyard. Its high natural level of acidity enables it to balance a hint of residual sugar, settingoff aromas of rose petal, apple, pear, peach and apricot and leading to a grand crisp finish of flinty mineral notes.


2-Bergamais: This refreshing, fruity ‘nouveau style' wine shows the bright cherry flavorsand aromas of the Gamay grape. Typically consumed young and served slightly chilled. It can be enjoyed on any occasion.

White Merlot: Take Merlot. Make it a blush. Voila - a Merlot like you've never experienced! Fresh strawberries abound in the aromas and flavorsof this medium-pink rose style wine, capped by a crisp finish that's slightly drier than a typical blush. Bright fruit and generous acidity make it a brilliant food pairing wine. Try it with salads, appetizers, fruits - even BBQs and spicy cuisine.


3-Black Cherry Pinot Noir: This sweet, ruby red wine presents succulent flavors of fresh, ripe black cherries, balanced by a subtle touch of tannins. Light and fruity, this thirst quencher is a great addition to any summer festivity. 2008,2009,and 2011 WineMaker International Award Winner

Acai Raspberry Cabernet Sauvignon: Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is grown in the palm trees of the Amazon rainforest, and said to be one of the most nutritious foods in the world. It has antioxidant properties 15 times stronger than grapes, and is a great source of amino acids. It is thought the boost energy, improve digestion and create mental clarity. This small, dark purple fruit is so tasty,
