The class focuses on “craft wines,” which are non-commercial, fruit wines produced for personal consumption. Class sessions include recipe-construction, fermentation, racking and bottling. Participants in the class can expect entertaining, informative, and hands-on sessions in which they make roughly 15 bottles of wine.

Cox emphasizes fun, creativity, and variety in his wine-making. “This will be an enjoyable and informative class that gives participants wine and an experience they’re pleased with,” says Cox. The class meets on six Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 PM: Feb. 21; March 7 and 14; April 4 and 25; and May 2. The cost is $90 for HAC members and $100 for non-members; one must be 21 or older to participate. Some materials will be provided for students, and some will need to be rented or purchased.

Register for class at the HAC on 212 South Wall Street in downtown Calhoun or by calling 706-629-2599. Registration ends February 15.
