Home Winemaking Workshop held today

Twenty-eight people participated in our home winemaking workshop held today. Dr. Karl Wilker, professor and winemaker at MSU, and Mr. Todd Frye, owner of the Home Brewery in Ozark, presented information on home winemaking. Graduate students Xinyi Zhang and Josh Glasson helped people through demonstrations on sensory evaluation of glassware and wine flaws. After the presentations, C. J. Odneal and Dr. Wilker conducted a tour of the Mountain Grove Cellars winery and distillery and provided a tasting of MSU wines.
