Science of Wine: Testing and Tasting – Election Eve at Questacon

By mmoylan@unimelb.edu.au 11 August 2010 1

We have all heard that wine is good for us in moderation because it contains antioxidants.

But what exactly are antioxidants? Why do some wines taste peppery, while others have hints of vanilla or marzipan? What happens when wines spoil?

This delicious event will reveal the chemistry behind these questions, invite you to conduct scientific experiments on wine and put what you have learnt into practice by tasting a selection of Canberra wines from local winemakers.

THIS EVENT IS FREE but please reserve a place by e-mailing RSVP@questacon.edu.au
