Time: 7pm – 9pm

Location: Lowe & Co., 8 O’Connell St, Athlone, Co. Westmeath, N37 X8K1

Cost: €15 – €35

Facilitator: Siobhán Lavelle

Learn how to make your own wine using wildflowers. Can you imagine, for little or no expense, producing a high-end alcoholic beverage that not only tastes delicious but, having no artificial additives, is better for your health than almost any wine you can buy?

It’s possible and not even difficult, once you learn a few basic things.

Siobhán makes artisanal wines from foraged fruit and flowers and from organic fruit grown on site. She uses wild yeast fermentation, creating wines that are more complex in flavour, gentler on the body and unique to the time and place in which they were created.

You can too.

This will be a relaxed, interactive event in which you can learn the steps involved in making wine, see some of the wine-making process, ask questions and taste the finished product!

Book soon as places are limited.

Sliding scale is to accommodate people on lower incomes. Please pay what you can afford to help balance out costs.

Barter offers may be accepted. Please contact us to discuss this option.

If you prefer to pay in cash, please phone or text PJ 0874162268
