CLASSES NORMALLY $55 PER CLASS


Exact dates for each class will be announced early 2019. An email notification will go out to customers who have purchased before that date announcement.

We are so lucky to pair with Stephen this upcoming season and bring our second year of viticulture classes to Rooftop Reds. Stephen is the owner of Long Island Vine Care and he is going to be teaching the classes right here on the rooftop. The goal of these classes are to expand one's appreciation and depth of knowledge for wine education. Stephen will guide students through each aspect of vineyard management to show the overall process of the final product- wine! These classes are for everyone because we will start from the very beginning such as: grapevine history and move through the process ending at wine making basics.

This order includes all of these classes:
Class one: Grapevine History Early cultivation, grape varieties, Jefferson and the beginning of American wine, and the pop cultures affects on drinking trends.

Class Two: Plant Physiology Fundamentals of pruning, trellis system, grafting and propagation, photosynthesis, plant hormones and translocation of elements.

Class Three: Grape Varieties Hybrid, "noble" varieties, native varieties, and exploring why some varieties thrive in certain locations around the world.

Class Four: Site Selection Micro-climate, choosing the right variety, effects of shading, soil health, frost and other weather events. We will also talk about wine style and quality.

Class Five: Vineyard Pests Humidity and rot disease, viruses and bacterial disorders. Pests, such as rabbits, deer, birds, etc.

Class Six: Wine Regions Defining terroir, and comparing the same variety grown in different climates.

Class Seven: Wine Making White, Rose, red fermentation science, yeast, tannin, carbonic maceration, aging and cellaring, pH, etc. How all of these elements relate back to how the grapes we're grown and the effect of the weather of that particular vintage.


Normally $385, only $308 when purchased together!
