The Science of Wine

  • 10/06/2013
  • 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Verde Vineyard, Johnston RI


Registration is closed
Join RISTA on a tour of Verde Vineyard with owner/former biology professor, James Verde. He will discuss the process of winemaking from from a scientific perspective; how he chooses the varieties of grapes, conditions that are beneficial to growth, the harvesting of the crop, processing wine from the grapes, and the bottling process. 

A number of different wines will be offered for tasting along with some delicious appetizers. 

Wines will be available for purchase.

Verde Vineyards was born out of a passion for the Earth's bounty. Traditional wine making techniques: hand picked grapes, open fermentation and oak barrel aging produce a wine reminiscent of the Southern Rhone Valley. This small Johnston vineyard overlooks Moswansicut Lake in Scituate, RI.
