LOS LUNAS – There is more to making wine than just growing grapes. Wine making is a science of blending how the grapes are grown and how they are fermented into wine.

“When you take a sip of your favorite wine, you most likely savor the delicious flavors and take in the distinct aromas. But you probably don’t think about the science behind that smooth, tasty beverage,” said Gill Giese, New Mexico State University Extension viticulture specialist.

NMSU’s College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences will hold a wine analysis workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 21, at the NMSU Agricultural Science Center at Los Lunas, 1036 Miller Road.

“We will be explaining, demonstrating and practicing applied grape and wine analysis that is available to small wineries and how to interpret and apply the results to make better wine,” Giese said.

Winemakers Carrie Gurule of Guru-LeVin LLC and Mary Simmons will help with the workshop.

Cost of the workshop is $45. There will be limited seating, so pre-registration is encouraged online at aces.nmsu.edu/ces/viticulture/.
