Nov 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

A History of Viticulture in America and the Early Wine Industry in the U.S., Night 1

This two-night course takes you through a historical tour since the Viking landfall of Vinland in year 1000.  The first night of the course covers early sightings of grapes in the New World, various attempts at viticulture and Thomas Jefferson’s viticultural and enological interests.  The second night will cover the very early attempts at commencing an American wine industry from the early colonial period through the many very successful wine regions of the Midwest to the dawn of the Californian wine industry in the late 19th century. We will sample five wines each night and thematically appropriate food will be served to comprise a light meal.

Registration for this event (both nights included) will be announced via an email invitation, typically sent three weeks before the class. The class is open to the first 36 registrants. To be added to the email invitation list, please contact Matt Eidem at matt.eidem@hcsmuseum.org or (218) 291-4211.

Registration to attend both nights is $100.
