Taste Custom Crush wines tonight -- and get ready to make your own
Wine & Whey's Custom Crush gives enthusiasts the chance to crush their own grapes and create their own unique wines. The process includes everything from wine-making classes to grape selection and the grape crush, but it all starts today with a tonight's wine-tasting.
For this year's Custom Crush, Wine & Whey has sourced 8,000 pounds of fruit from California: Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which can be made into your choice of a 100 percent varietal or a custom-blend. But before you start making your own wine, taste some of the wines made during the 2012 Custom Crush, with grapes from the same vines.
The evening will start at 6 p.m. with a talk and a cheese platter snack; tickets for the tasting are $10. For more information about Custom Crush, visit wineandwhey.com.
