From our organizers:
We are so lucky to pair with Stephen this season and bring our first viticulture classes to Rooftop Reds. Stephen is the owner of Long Island Vine Care and he is going to be teaching the classes right here on the rooftop. The goal of these classes are to expand one’s appreciation and depth of knowledge for wine education. Stephen will guide students through each aspect of vineyard management to show the overall process of the final product- wine! These classes are for everyone because we will start from the very beginning such as: grapevine history and move through the process ending at wine making basics.
Class seven: White, Rose, red fermentation science, yeast, tannin, carbonic maceration, aging and celaring, pH, etc. How all of these elements relate back to how the grapes we’re grown and the effect of the weather of that particular vintage.
