Join us at Mother Earth Farm for Wine & Weeding! Between intermittent sessions of weeding veggies, we will sample different wine varieties with University of Puget Sound’s Associate Professor, Pierre Ly. Throughout the tasting you will be invited to guess which grape varieties each wine may be. But don’t worry, you don’t need to know anything about wine. We’ll have little cheat sheets with the classic taste descriptions of these grapes to see if anyone can match them with the wines! In addition, Pierre has prepared a tasting related to organic wine in theme with Mother Earth Farm’s organic practices.

Pierre Ly teaches several courses in international political economy, including, The Idea of Wine. His research interests include the political economy of wine, economic development, and NGOs. Pierre has done fieldwork with NGOs in Bangladesh and, more recently, in the Chinese wine industry.

21 and up. Photo ID and event RSVP required.
