World of Wine: From Grape to Glass

World of Wine: From Grape to Glass

by Kerry Wilkinson

Overview

Wine is a beverage steeped in cultural, historical, and even religious significance. The production of wine dates back thousands of years with wine regions classified as Old World or European and New World, referring to wine production outside of Europe.

Led by Kerry Wilkinson, Cassandra Collins, David Jeffery, and Paul Grbin of The University of Adelaide in Australia, this six-week course gives insight beyond basic tasting notes. Factors involving geology, horticulture, geography, and chemistry all contribute to how and why people enjoy a glass of wine, whether that be a riesling or a merlot.

Favorite quote

Winemaking practices developed in the New World are increasingly being adopted by Old World wine regions ... differences in winemaking philosophies are less apparent.
