During the upcoming winter session, Dr. Pamela Green will be offering The Science of Wine (PLSC167-010). The course is open to undergraduate students and anyone else who would like to register. The enrollment limit is already set at its maximum, and the course filled up very quickly the last three years, so be sure to register ASAP. If you are not able to get a seat during registration, you might come to the first class and then check UDSIS periodically during the add/drop period to see whether any seats become available. Sometimes a few students drop during the first week.
The Science of Wine is a one credit course held in GOR219 Tuesdays and Thursdays form 4:30-5:45pm. Students will learn about the science of wine from the vine to the glass, including: aging and maturation, fermentation, plant growth and development, harvesting and crushing, growth conditions and propagation, the winemaking process, pests and soil, flavor and its perception. The class is suitable for non-science majors. Special guest lecturers include Gerret Copeland, owner of Bouchaine Vineyards in Napa Valley, CA, and Phil Pyle, Chef and Owner, Fair Hill Inn.
