Satisfy Your Taste for More Wine Information!
Visit the Resnick Library Wine Exhibit, courtesy of the Hospitality Department and Generous Contributors.
When asked, “what kind of wine do you prefer?” do you:
a. wish you were 21
b. respond, “depends on who’s buying”
c. name a color (red, white, pink)
d. say, “I really don’t know”
e. ask, “what food is being served?”
f. other (bet there’s some good ones too)
Today’s consumers are becoming more knowledgeable and versatile in selecting wine for purchase. No longer is it proper wine etiquette to drink specific wines with given foods. Wine lovers and novices alike should drink the variety of wine they enjoy, when and with what they like. Educating one’s palette should be an enjoyable and lifelong pursuit.
Thanks to Instructor Don Reynolds, student George Udovich, Alumni Coordinator Aliza Rutledge, and supportive contributors Resnick Library is hosting an informative wine exhibit through March.
Those interested in pursuing more information are invited to search the Resnick Library catalog for the many informative books, articles, and DVDs on the subject. Additionally, the following course is offered on campus Fall Semester 2009:
