It is said that a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. This webinar provides all the necessary information to fully appreciate this best companion of good food. It presents the history of wine as well as the chemical aspects of fermentation and of aging. Recent studies suggesting that moderate wine consumption is beneficial to health are also examined in a critical fashion. Informative and humorous, the webinar concludes with an introduction to the 'science' of wine appreciation with particular reference to the understanding of wine labels and the proper technique of wine tasting. A pleasure for all, from the experienced oenophile, to the wine lover 'in waiting.'
