Amazingly I have (only?) ten days until I graduate! It is a bit surreal yet as we are wrapping up ‘lose ends’ and prepping for finals. Funny how busy and crazy things get before they will be culminate permanently with graduation. As I have a couple of projects that require lots of attention, I will share with you some of our activities during the last two weeks.
Vineyard work as there was die-back from the November frost and some weather damage the last few days.
Field trips to industry related places like Key Technology here in Walla Walla.
Bottling Tempranillo with added sugar and yeast for next year’s class. We had a fiasco with the Riesling that was to be refermented!
Disgorging last year’s sparkling wine for this year’s distribution.
Disgorged yeast lees.
Learning distillation while listening to Folk music and playing the banjo.
