COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri wine research center is holding public tastings of experimental varieties this week.
Eighteen to 20 Missouri wines from the 2012 vintage were scheduled to be presented at the tasting events Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon in Columbia. The Grape and Wine Institute is a part of the university's College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
Campus scientists use the results to help assess the quality of grapes they grow.
The tastings cost $20 and include a deli buffet.
