May 25, 2022 – Lisa Bishop Forbes Winemaking is pleased to announce a Wine Quality Clinic on June 2, 2022, in Sebastopol. The three-hour clinic gives winemakers an opportunity to work one-on-one with an accomplished consultant to fix a problem wine. Lisa’s background as Director of Winemaking at Chalk Hill Winery, Winemaker at Dry Creek Vineyard, and Winemaker and Manager of Production at Ektimo Vineyards and Ross Road Custom Crush, offers strong experience to her winemaking consultancy. Over 80 of Lisa’s wines have garnered 90 point and above scores from the Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast including four scoring 96 points.
Attendees will bring a bottle of their own wine with a quality issue. Lisa will taste the wine with each winemaker, go over their production process, and develop strategies to fix the problem. The clinic concludes with an open group discussion and a glass of wine.
“Winemaking is my passion. Helping winemakers evaluate and solve their winemaking problems is a real pleasure,” says Bishop Forbes.
