Anniversary Weekend Special Wine Demonstration: Disgorging Sparkling Wine, Sunday November 11th at 1 pm
Have you ever wondered how those bubbles get in your sparkling wine? Join us at Curds and Wine to celebrate our Two-Year Anniversary with a very special winemaking demonstration. The 2012 Best of Division winners of the San Diego County Fair for their sparkling wine made from a kit will talk about how sparkling wines are made, then show you one of the most dramatic processes in this winemaking -- disgorging the sediment from the riddled wine. You can even sign up to make your own sparkling wine on site at Curds and Wine!
