It was an enchanting evening at Orlando Science Center’s fourth annual Science of Wine on Saturday, May 10, 2014.

With 150 wines to sample and some of the best gourmet food from Orlando’s top restaurants and caterers, not to mention the education spread throughout, it truly makes a unique occasion.
