Fermenting grapes

If you want to try your hand at winemaking but don’t have the $900,000 it takes to start a winery, Crushcamp may be your ticket to vino bliss.

From the folks at Crushpad, the urban winery in San Francisco, comes Crushcamp, a “more the merrier,” community-focused take on harvest that democratizes wine and winemaking. At Crushcamp, you will sort, de-stem, and crush grapes plus perform punch downs in fermentation bins and participate in the sensory analysis of various grape varietals. All you need is ten bucks and a set of clothes you don’t care about.

The next harvest Crushcamp will be held on Sept. 19 at 11:30 a.m. Learn more about it and sign up on the Crushpad website.
