Base Camp: (Noun) A place where one prepares for a journey or expedition

 
 
Join us for in depth discussions and tastings surrounding winemaking problems, faults and what causes them. We will sample wines in a blind tasting format, identify problems that may be present in the wines and thoroughly explore the causes, remediation products and techniques and how to avoid the same issues in the future. Basecamp is a great opportunity to get constructive feedback from other winemakers, wine researchers and lab technicians on a wine from your cellar and take home ideas on what to do next. Everyone has skin in the game and brings a wine. If you are looking for feedback on harvest trials you conducted please bring those too!
