2010 Club Project Sierra Foothill Zinfandel

Members are encouraged to participate in the Club Winemaking Project. Each year at harvest, partipants have the opportunity to join together on the same day to take delivery of grapes at a selected vineyard. Usually grapes arrive picked and are crushed on site. White grapes are typically pressed on site. Winemakers then follow a planned protocol for making up to 5 gallons of wine for evaluation one year later. The club offers 50% reimbursement of the cost of grapes for making up to 5 gallons of wine. You must be a member to have your wine evaluated and you must submit two 750ml bottles of wine to be evaluated in order to be reimbursed. It's incredible how much we learn and how different the wines all taste!

The 2010 Club Project is Sierra Foothill Zinfandel from Oakstone Winery/Obscurity Cellars in Fair Play. The Club Project is a perfect way for new and novice winemakers to learn about winemaking because a smaller quantity of grapes can be obtained. The negotiated price is 75 cents/lb ($1,500/ton) and the grapes are picked and crushed. Please contact 2010 Club Project Coordinator, Neal Shleffar at freeportlanding@sbcglobal.net for additional information.
