Garage Enologists of Sonoma County

Sonoma County, California

GENCO was formed to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and  information, and to promote viticulture and production of quality wine within the membership. We share information on experiences, successes, failures, and pitfalls in making wine and conduct tastings of member wines for evaluation and enjoyment.

At each meeting we explore a subject of particular interest to our members regarding home winemaking or grape growing. We have an open discussion at some meetings and at others we have a knowledgeable guest speaker. We share in the purchase of winemaking supplies (bottles, corks, carboys, supplies, etc.) to obtain larger lots for better pricing.

GENCO meets once a month in or near Healdsburg. The group shares ideas, problems, and wine, and is not only informative, but fun. We have beginner and experienced winemakers. If you are interested in joining or would like more information about GENCO, please contact us at info@gencowinemakers.com

" Do not let this bottle of wine serve as an inspiration to call your ex in a pathetic attempt to get back together. Some very fine grapes have died in making of this wine. Show some respect! "
