Continuing ed course teaches viticulture and enology

From a July 23 Ithaca Journal story about the Cornell University Viticulture and Enology Experience offered as part of the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions:

The 13 participants in the Cornell University Viticulture and Enology Experience this week went beyond simple appreciation and learning about the chemistry, agriculture and business sides of wine. …

Alan Lakso, a professor of horticultural science, teaches the viticulture — or grape growing — side of the course.

“I want them to understand what goes into growing grapes,” Lasko said. “Some have had questions regarding what you do to prepare the land … It’s a real challenging business to be in.”

Kathy Arnink, a lecturer in food science, leads the enology, or wine appreciation and winemaking, portion of the course.

“For me, I find the science so interesting,” she said. “It’s a beverage everyone can enjoy, and if you know more about the science,” it enhances the experience.
