  • Discuss the challenges of making wine at home
  • Explore the differences between making reds vs. whites
  • Learn about storage, testing, and more

About the Speaker

Tim Tuttle has been a home winemaker for more than 20 years, but his passion for it goes back even further; as a kid he watched his Sicilian grandfather make wine in his basement. This passion for making wine has led to numerous awards (several double gold, gold, and silver medals) and the elusive California State Golden Bear award for the Best Red Wine in California in 2016.
