As many of you know, it has long been part of our plan to expand and include more extensive instruction and to make wine in barrels.
The quality of barrel aging cannot be compared to wine made in plastic buckets and glass carboys. While most folks do not have the space, equipment, or knowledge for the process in barrels, Weak Knee Wine Club offers a solution to all of that and much more!
Federal and state laws designate that you must make your wine. You must participate in every phase of the entire process - we may not do it for you. We may only provide instruction, guidance, the lab work, storage and equipment. The finished product may not be used for resale and the limit is 400 gallons per household.
Stop by to taste and chat; tour the wine room. Look over the grape descriptions and create your own personal blend or choose a varietal to fill a barrel. Perhaps you don't need 200+ bottles of the same kind of wine ~ get in on a Group Barrel instead!
