Uncork your inner sommelier—and scientist—with a fun, educational VIRTUAL wine tasting!

The EWU Alumni Association’s Eagle Flights Wine Club, in partnership with the departments of geology and chemistry, present: Before the Bottle: How Science Makes Wine Take Flight.

This is not your ordinary wine tasting, rather a VIRTUAL oenological exploration, with presentations by EWU professors on multiple aspects of wine growing and geology, as well as the chemistry, structure and composition behind wine. Join us virtually on the EWUAA Facebook page live from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17.
