Falderal wine-making class

Published 5:14pm Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Falderal Winery will teach two classes on making wine in January: Saturday, Jan. 12, from 3-6 p.m., and on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

In each session, students will learn the art of making wine – using either fresh fruits or a wine-making kit. Classes are held at Falderal Winery, in downtown Hendersonville. Reservations must be made in advance. Cost of each class includes the class/demonstration, one bottle of wine from Falderal Winery and a tasting of various wines available at Falderal. For more information, call 828-693-7676 or email info@falderalwinery.com to sign up or for more information.

“If you choose to make wine using one of our kits you’ll produce about 30 bottles of good wine ready to serve in 28 to 45 days, depending on the type of wine you’re making,” said Paul Kovacich. Kovacich is winemaster at Falderal Winery and teaches the classes. “Folks who want to start a winemaking project using their own fruits will learn a lot, too.”

Falderal Winery is open Tuesday – Friday 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
