Join us for two unique nights of creativity. This is a two-part class. At the first session (held at the Rum River Art Center), the class will mix the ingredients to make two types of wine (no grape stomping is involved) and each class member will create an original canvas painting, which will also be turned into a custom wine label. Five weeks later the wine will be ready for bottling. At the second session (held at Genesis Winemaking), class members will socialize while tasting and bottling the wine, and your canvas painting will be reproduced as your custom wine label. Each class participant will end up with their canvas painting and 2 bottles of custom-labeled, craft wine.
The class is perfect for winemakers and artists of all levels - whether novice or connoisseur.
