Want to make a barrel of wine in Maryland. You will want to check out Tin Lizzie Wineworks in Clarksville, Maryland not far from Baltimore and Washington, DC.
Tin Lizzie Wineworks is a hands-on teaching winemaking facility. Tin Lizzie Wineworks is the brainstorm of Dave Zuchero, owner and winemaker. Zuchero’s business has been teaching winemaking for several years. Would-be winemakers will appreciate the low-key approach that Dave has while working with participants to create the type of wine they will enjoy.
Is 2013 the year you want to make a barrel of wine? Tin Lizzie in Maryland is the place to consider doing it at. Zuchero has established a routine that makes it easy for participants to schedule time; of course, grapes and winemaking have their own schedule too. Many of the grapes are sourced from California and they are about a month ahead of schedule.
Several pricing options are available. However they all include instruction, grapes/juice, equipment, bottles, corks and labels. If a full barrel of wine is too much for your needs, consider making a half or quarter of a barrel.
Three years ago we worked with a group to make a barrel of wine at Tin Lizzie Wineworks and really enjoyed the experience. In 2012 we made a barrel of Cabernet Sauvignon that is going through extended aging now. We tasted it the other day and were impressed with the results. Currently we plan to allow it to continue to age.
Much more information is available on the Tin Lizzie Wineworks website.
Since the grape harvest in California is early, participants should email or call Dave now so he will know how many tons of grapes to source.
