Turning Winemaking’s Trash Into Treasures to Support Newtown Youth & Family Services

What do you do with Pomaceis or the leftover skins, pulp and seeds after wine has been made?

  • Produce grappa, brandy and gin

  • Grind the seeds to extract grape seed oil and mine the skins as a source of cream of tartar

  • Feed supplements for cattle

  • Enhance your compost


ALL proceeds from this event directly benefited Newtown Youth & Family Services!
