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 email@example.com
Next meeting is Wednesday, August 25th, 7:00 pm
at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Healdsburg
Bring 3 wine glasses
Speaker: GENCO MEMBER Tom Jereb
Topic: Everything you ever wanted to know about Barbera
Our first meeting back in the Hall since February 2020!!!!
GENCO member Tom “the Barberaian” Jereb will lead a discussion about Barbera. Tom will provide us with an overview of the Barbera grape, predominant growing regions around the world, and taste characteristics.
We will taste commercial Barberas from several major growing regions here and abroad, as well as some of Tom’s current and prior homemade releases.
Any GENCO member that has made a Barbera is welcome to bring a bottle for the social hour after the meeting. We will provide some salumi, bread, antipasti, and cheeses to go with these hearty reds.
