Program for April 7th

Our speaker for April 7th will be Marcy Mallette, Winemaker and Technical Representative for Laffort. If you are a winemaker, you have probably used their products (yeasts, nutrients, enzymes, tannins, etc.)  They also have a line of wine additives to improve/alter the taste of wines in the final stages before bottling.  You can click here to learn more about Laffort products.

Marcy would like to demonstrate these products and is asking us to provide 2 or 3 each of whites and reds.  So, please contact Mike Ferree if you have a wine that might benefit from a visit to the "wine doctor".

We will also be having a white elephant raffle immediately following the 50/50 drawing at our April W&S meeting.
