Description
Focus on stabilization and clarification of both white and red wines on the way to bottling. It will include both heat and cold stability as well as filtration and fining techniques of wine. The culmination of the course will be when wines which students started in EV 107 are blended, filtered, fined and bottled. Excursions to other wineries as well as guest speakers are included. Prerequisites: Successful completion of EV 204.
