Lecture at Astor Wines & Spirits / re: new book Tasting the Past: the Science of Flavor & the Search for the Origins of Wine

Kevin Begos will give a lecture about wine grape DNA, forgotten wine history, and how technology may impact the future of winemaking on Wed. June 20 at The Astor Center, 399 Lafayette St., NYC

Time: 11am to 12:15pm; questions afterwards.

Alice Feiring will give an introduction.

My book features visits with scientists Jose Vouillamoz and Shivi Drori, wineries such as Arianna Occhipinti and

Plaimont Producers, and winemakers in Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Cyprus, and Alaverdi Monastery, Georgia.

Here's what Kermit Lynch had to say about the book:

"The book shocked the hell out of me. Well done!! I hope it is read widely throughout the wine world and that it has a huge impact.” 

Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures on the Wine Route
