Have you ever noticed how wine creates tears on the sides of your glass once it’s poured? There’s a scientific reason for that! It’s a result of evaporation and surface tension. Maybe not something you usually think about while indulging in your favorite red or white, but at the Pink Palace Museum’s upcoming event — The Science of Wine — you can learn about this and much more as you sip on your favorite vintage. The event will be held Friday, July 31st, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
In addition to fun activities demonstrating wine-related science, you can also listen in on lectures to learn a few things. Topics will include: Science of Cava (Spanish Champagne), Science of Sake (Japanese Rice Wine), and Science of Pinot Noir Clonal Blending. An installment of the museum’s adult education series, the event will feature a variety of wines provided by West Tennessee Crown Distributing Co.
Hors d’oeuvres from a selection of Memphis’ top restaurants will be served.
Participating restaurants include: Erling Jensen Restaurant Iris Tsunami The Grove Grill Whole Foods Porcellino’s Las Tortugas Nothing Bundt Cakes Café Society and more!
Attendees can also participate in a wine pull. Money raised will go to the Pink Palace’s education department.
