Preparing for 2021 Harvest

OCWS Winemakers’ Group presents an educational webinar showing you how to develop a “crush plan” for the upcoming harvest.

Learn about any special treatment particular varietals may need. He will also share some of the tips and techniques learned from over 10 years of winemaking with the OCWS.
