Wine Diamonds & Other Mysteries: The Science of Wine

Saturday April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

It’s the end of a long day, you pour yourself a nice glass of wine and notice these littles bits growing on your cork and sitting in the bottom of your glass! What are these, and should you still drink the wine? They are called wine diamonds and come and find out! We will also discuss the science behind why not everyone likes the same type of wine, how one species of grape (like Riesling) can lead to so many delicious varieties of wine, and why can we detect apple, lemon, or pepper in something that is made from a grape. With the Intoxicating Professor: Heather McKechney, NYK Beverage University Instructor and chemistry professor, we will drink some wonderful wine and learn a little about the science behind the answers to all these questions and more. Impress your friends and rule your favorite trivia night with your nerdy (but not too nerdy) tidbits of wine knowledge!
