It was an enchanting evening at Orlando Science Center’s fourth annual Science of Wine on Saturday, May 10, 2014. The event was sold out for the second year in a row as guests, patrons and partners experienced the wonder and joy of the Science Center in a very different way. 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.
Proceeds from the Science of Wine provide operating support for educational programs and opportunities for youth, regardless of their ability to pay, to experience the fun and discovery of Orlando Science Center.
Special thanks to presenting sponsor Akerman and wine sponsor Southern Wine & Spirits for supporting this event since its inception in 2010.
The 2013 Science of Wine saw a record number of more than 700 attendees sample wine, learn the science thereof and raise funds for Orlando Science Center’s educational programs.
Almost two dozen of Orlando’s top restaurants prepared delectable bites and more than 100 wines were available to taste. Information stations allowed guests to discover how wine is made and much more. In addition, Luis Torres of the Constellation Academy of Wine returned for the third year to give a seminar that examined how best to pair wine with cheese.
Thanks to presenting sponsor Akerman, wine provider Southern Wine & Spirits, restaurant partners, sponsors and educators for their support.
