What is the science behind winemaking? How does science inform the quality and flavor of wine, and its effects on your health? How has winemaking evolved over the centuries, how is technology shaping the wine industry? What are the prospects for California’s iconic wine industry in a world undergoing rapid climatic and environmental changes?
If these questions intrigue you, you’ll want to join us for the next Café Scientifique. Fresno State’s newest winemaker Matt Brain will talk about the science of winemaking, and how modern—and indeed post-modern—technologies are influencing winemaking in the 21st century.
So join us on the first Wednesday of March to enjoy a sip of wine from the Fresno State winery—the only academic wine label—or a pint of your favorite local beer Peeve’s has on tap, flavored with another round of science!
