Wine Making Club

The Winemaking Club, aka "Happy Vintners", was started in 2011. This is a group interested in the art of producing fine wines. The club determines the varietals of wines they wish to produce, acquire the grapes through a local winemaker and then carryout the process of making and bottling the wines.


The club Chairman is Paul Richert - 201-967-1347.
