So we’ve had a brilliant couple of sessions here in Asheville discussing wine science. This morning was looking at the sensory effects of different oxygen transmission levels in wine. Then this afternoon we discussed the ratio between free and bound sulfur dioxide and total consumed oxygen in wines. There are some seriously interesting results from the research that has been done by participants here.
Sandwiched between these sessions was a trek out to Chimney Rock State Park. It’s a beautiful place, as I hope these pictures show. We had a picnic lunch and went for a hike. It was hot, sunny and quite lovely.
