|The Science of Food and Wine
Sunday, July 15th - 11:30 a.m.
$25 per person
|We all hear about food and wine pairing, but do we truly understand what it means? Taste is the sensation produced when a substance in the mouth reacts chemically with the receptors of your taste buds. Taste, along with smell, determines flavors. Join us for a scientific look at why certain elements in food pair well with wines. Explore the basics of sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and savory, and what that means to certain wine profiles. We will be tasting six wines, and experience which certain fod elements affect them in both a positive and a negative way.|
|Riesling, the Queen Bee of the Finger Lakes
Sunday, July 15th - 1:30 p.m.

|Rieslings have helped put the Finger Lakes on the world wine map. Taste for yourself why this is our Queen Bee varietal and see how food-friendly this grape can be. You will be tasting six wines total, with both dry and semi-dry expressions being poured.|
