2021 Private Barrel Chilean & South African Season



You have chosen the Private Barrel for your Winemaking Experience with Grape Expectations School of Winemaking. Congratulations! Whether this is your first experience or you are a seasoned winemaker, this season is sure to delight.


Firstly, secure your experience with the payment option which is right for you. You may select from the following; Pay-in-Full or Pay-a-Deposit. If you select Pay-a-Deposit, at least 50% of the barrel cost needs to be collected before we order your grapes. (Anticipated grape order deadline is August 31st for Fall/Californian winemaking. March 31st is the anticipated grape order deadline for Spring winemaking, therefore, these are the anticipated deposit due dates.) If you chose Pay-a-Deposit, a shareable invoice with the remaining balance & due dates will be emailed to you.

Secondly, if you know the type of wine you would like to make, to include, it may be specified in the Order Notes on the checkout page. If you are not sure what varietal, no problem! You have time, so relax. We will help. Grape Varietal consultations are available, so just ask. You may call, email, or indicate in your Order Notes at checkout that you need a consultation. Wine varietal selections are due August 31st for Fall Winemaking or March 31st for Spring Winemaking.
