For one night only, internationally acclaimed winemakers, viticulturists and chefs from Iconic Wineries of British Columbia showcased the science, craftsmanship and terroir that make Okanagan wines so extraordinary.
“Uncorked: A Celebration of the Science of Wine” at Science World transported guests into the world of fine winemaking with fun, hands-on activities, and interactive seminars as we “uncork” the science behind the incredible wines we all enjoy.
Attendees had the opportunity to interact with winemakers and viticulturists; learn about the science of winemaking via seminars, interviews and Q&A sessions; and — best of all — taste exceptional wines from the most exciting wineries in the Okanagan Valley, including Mission Hill Family Estate, CedarCreek Estate Winery, CheckMate Artisanal Winery, Martin’s Lane Winery and Road 13 Vineyards.
Guests enjoyed culinary delights by Chef Patrick Gayler from Mission Hill’s Terrace Restaurant, named by Travel + Leisure magazine as ‘One of the Top 5 Winery Restaurants in the World’ and CedarCreek’s new Home Block Restaurant, nominated by enRoute magazine as one of ‘Canada’s Best New Restaurants’ in 2019.
Proceeds supported Science World’s On the Road program, which last year brought live science performances to 41,500 students throughout BC who otherwise might not have had a chance to visit TELUS World of Science.
