Night 2: Science in the Winery.  Learn about the science involved in turning grapes into wine – from fermentation to additives.

Night 3: Science in the Glass. Wrap up your wine science journey by mastering the art of sensory evaluation. Discover the role of tannins, acidity, and aroma in your overall wine experience.

This class isn’t just for science nerds. Whether you’re a wine novice or enthusiast, join us for an enlightening journey into the scientific realm of winemaking. Book your spot today and let’s raise a glass to the joys of wine…and science!
