Missouri Wine Research Institute Hosts Tasting

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri wine institute wants the public’s help in selecting new wines that will be featured in the school’s 2011 selections.

The university’s Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology is hosting a pair of tastings on March 22 and April 5 of its latest batch of new grape cultivars.

The five-hour University Club events cost $49 and include lunch. The registration deadline is March 17.

Missouri was one of the nation’s leading wine producers before Prohibition and has seen a resurgence of vineyards in recent years.
