HEDGEROW WINE MAKING WORKSHOP
Come and spend a fabulous couple of days on our lovely Devon Farm and take away with you the skills to produce your own home made wine – delicious.
As well as your new found hobby you will take home a Demijohn of bubbling, fermenting ingredients that may be ready for you to enjoy a toast with by Christmas.
Wine making is an absorbing and addictive pastime, a combination of alchemy, flair and method. This workshop should be the start of a lifelong passion; a few simple ingredients and some knowledgeable tuition will start you on the path to producing your own wine.
Gathering, foraging, trading or possibly even growing your own produce will evolve into an activity that is only outshined by its consumption – Drink and Enjoy!
A two day course demonstrating the techniques for producing homemade wine and other drinks such as Elderflower Champagne and Hedgerow Vodka.
