The genius of wine
Sometimes events pass me by.
I just heard about the Science Uncorked: The Genius of Wine series at the Maryland Science Center -- but it seems to be the second installment.
This one is tied to the Science Center’s latest touring exhibition, "Da Vinci: The Genius," which means it's an examination of "wines from the homeland of Leonardo da Vinci."
That would be Italy.
I think they've got the right idea: Call it science, but really talk about and drink a lot of Italian wines from different regions and of different vintages. And, OK, maybe learn something.
The event takes place next Thursday, Oct. 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Wine Market is in charge, and the admission ($40 for members, $45, nonmembers) includes hors d’oeuvres by Chef Jason Lear of the Wine Market.
