ENWS Wildcraft Wines 2023 – TX

October 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - October 29, 2023 @ 3:00 pm CDT

$225

Spend the weekend with us exploring the possibilities of Central Texas foraging, to create simple wildcrafted wines. Humans have been brewing and fermenting wine for thousands of years! Open a whole new world of possibility with this class as we explore local wild yeasts, learn the process of preparing a simple wild wine, and discuss bonus topics including hyper-local sodas and beers. Since the foraging landscape changes with the seasons, the opportunities to explore this skill and get creative are truly endless!

Day 1 with an exploration of local ingredients and the hands-on creation of wild yeast starters for fermentation. We will discuss the distinctions between primitive “raw” wines, country wines and their commercial cousins and end the day with a tasting.

Day 2 is hands on winemaking. Each student will take home a container of prickly pear wine starter to finish the fermentation process at home. The weekend will wrap with a peek at some other possibilities in wild brewing and Q and A on what we have covered.
