SW - Safety Week Module
Cheers! – The Chemistry of Wine
|It is said that a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. This lecture will provide the audience with all the necessary information to fully appreciate this best companion of good food. It presents the history of wine as well as the chemical aspects of fermentation and of aging. Recent studies suggesting that moderate wine consumption is beneficial to health are also examined in a critical fashion. This lecture, which is both informative and humorous, concludes with an introduction to the “science” of wine appreciation with particular reference to the understanding of wine labels and the proper technique of wine tasting. A pleasure for all, from the experienced oenophile, to the wine lover “in waiting.”
