Clark Smith Vino and Vinyl: Wine, Music, and Sensory Perception
August 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education presents a special evening with one of the top wine minds in the world, Clark Smith, author of Postmodern Winemaking.
We’re overjoyed to announce the return of Clark Smith, wine scientist (and wine rebel) to the Twin Cities for a series of eye-opening classes examining the role of science in winemaking, the diversity of the wines of America, and the crossroads of music and wine in sensory perception.
Clark’s knowledge, inventions, teachings, and innovations are well known in the wine industry. He’s a controversial person, constantly questioning trends and assumptions from the point of few of a scientist. But he’s not just a numbers on the blackboard guy. He’s a wine lover first and foremost, consulting for wineries around the world as well as producing his acclaimed WineSmith wines.
For this special evening, we will explore sensory perception and music appreciation through the lens (or glass?) of wine. Clark is the one that introduced me to the idea of music and wine pairing, and how music can shape the flavor components of our favorite beverage. GET READY TO ROCK!
This will be an eye-opening evening that will pair carefully chosen wines with a range of music, all the while with discussion with Clark Smith about the science behind the revelations.
We hope you can join us for this outstanding evening. Limited to 20 participants.
From the San Francisco Wine School: “Smith, best known for his book Postmodern Winemaking, has been named one of 48 Most Influential People in the Wine Industry. Smith calls into question conventional wisdom and explores traditions outside of mainstream wine production techniques. His WineSmith wines are forgeries and oddities that often succeed at the seemingly impossible, using traditional varieties and sometimes eclectic experiments with novel varieties and styles to illustrate many challenges to sommelier expectations. Smith has been teaching wine since 1984, and his insights and knowledge has been a guiding force in wine production to growers for decades.”
