Wine, as you see it today, isn’t the same drink it was 200 years ago – it’s better! Find out how scientific breakthroughs have increased wine’s longevity and made it more delicious than ever. Join enthusiastic wine-loving scientists from the Australian Wine Research Institute in an evening of wine tasting and story-telling.

Explore some of the game-changing discoveries that made wine what it is today, and journey into the future of wine with a look at the challenges and emerging technologies that will change how wine will be produced, viewed and consumed. How do microbes make wine taste so good and so different from grapes? How can wine last so long? What difference does the bottle cap make to the wine? Discover what it takes to make wine taste better, keep longer and stay healthier.

Our presenters will also debunk some common wine-related folklore and give you an opportunity to ask questions about all things wine and science at a group discussion. Soak in the view over the Torrens from the fabulous Gilbert Suite at the Adelaide Convention Centre, as you relish the wine and the science, in a fun-packed evening of entertainment. Activities, story-telling, and wine! …all to feed your mind and palate. Don’t miss out!

Arrival time is 5:15 pm. Welcome drinks (wine, beer, soft drink) at the door on arrival and light refreshments are served throughout the evening. The Gilbert Suite is on the northern side facing the Torrens River and Adelaide Oval. Entry is via Atrium entrance from North Terrace or Festival Drive (via foot).

Parking is available at the Convention Centre and Gilbert Suite is wheelchair accessible. 18+ only.
