A new wine-themed event will have Vancouverites swirling with nerdy glee. Uncorked: A Celebration of the Science of Wine is an evening of sipping and learning that will bring together world-renown winemakers, chefs, and science experts for an unforgettable event.

Uncorked will take place November 14 at Science World at TELUS World of Science in Vancouver, which also happens to be home to another wildly successful adults-only drink-centric annual event, the Science of Cocktails.

This new wine-focused event will feature seminars and tastings, plus the expertise – and wines – from some iconic B.C. wineries.

Participating wineries are:

  • Mission Hill Family Estate
  • CedarCreek Estate Winery
  • CheckMate Artisanal Winery
  • Martin’s Lane Winery
  • Road 13 Vineyards

The wines will be paired with bites from Chef Patrick Gayler from Mission Hill’s Terrace Restaurant and Chef Neil Taylor from CedarCreek’s new Home Block Restaurant.

Programming for the evening includes seminars on the science of blending wine, the science of aging wine, the role of technology at modern vineyards, and the science of soil and terroir.

Plus, there will be a sparkling wine lounge, silent auction, blind tastings, and more hands-on activities developed by the Science World team.

Proceeds from Uncorked will support Science World’s On the Road program, which last year brought live science performances to 41,500 students throughout B.C. who otherwise might not have had a chance to visit TELUS World of Science.
