Grandmother's Workshop: Nocino June 20th and June 27th 1:00pm-3:30pm
Last June, a couple dozen of us gathered for a grandfather workshop led by Arrigo Benedetti, who demonstrated how people from his home region of Emilia-Romagna use green walnuts to make a liqueur known as nocino (the name comes from noce, the Italian word for walnut).  Arrigo is back to reprise his demonstration, this time with some examples of nocino made commercially in Italy, as well as the homemade version he made last year.  

This year's nocino workshop will be hosted by St. George Spirits ( in Alameda, maker of award-winning eau de vie and Hangar One vodkas, and will include a tour of Hangar One and a tasting of their products, and light snacks.  

The cost for this event is $28 per person (the St. George tour and tasting alone is regularly priced at $40).  Each participant will leave with a recipe for homemade nocino and a bag of green walnuts from Alfieri Farm in Ripon, to take home (enough to make a litre or so of nocino - for those who want to make more, email to arrange for you to get more green walnuts).    

21 and over only.  Due to high demand and limited space, we will hold the event again on June 27th.
