Have you always wondered what mead is all about? These two courses will take you on both a tasty and educational adventure. Brewers and winemakers alike know that the buzz in the world of alcoholic beverages is all about mead. Explore this fascinating fermented beverage from its rich history to its recent rebirth in America. Taste and learn the styles, ingredient selection and the steps to making good mead. Three outstanding mead makers will join with faculty and staff from the Department of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis to offer an in-depth experience.
Want some hands-on experience, too? Sign up for our Mead Making BOOTCAMP. This hands-on course will feature small learning groups, each with its own UC Davis leader and a talented mead maker. Groups of 5-6 will follow a basic mead recipe. Finally, students will bottle the mead made in previous workshops and taste and critique that mead.
Using the EARLY BEE Special, the Bootcamp costs $300 ($350 after January 1, 2023)
Introduction to Making Mead is $600 ($675 after January 1, 2023)
