Kathryn House Gives Wine Instruction 101


08Feb2014_1b_Wine-Class-Kat-House_Instructions-Cinder-Wines_RobinGoing back and re-checking or re-evaluating “the basics” in any activity that we may be involved in is always a good choice. Robin and I did so with a local Wine Educator, Kathryn House – see a link to her site and business in the sidebar. It was a good session and what did I bring home that is new information? Yes indeed, winemakers do have barrels with a variation of wood types made. Usually the staves – sides – may include different types of wood. But the ends also may be made of different woods. Interesting and enjoy these photos of the seminar. Cheers!
