Swirl, sniff, sip: Students to study the chemistry of wine

March 19, 2001

The study of chemistry doesn't have to be limited to the classroom, but who would have envisioned it could take place in a winery?

Later this month, Dr. Todd Lafrenz, assistant professor of chemistry and chair elect of the Nashville Section of the American Chemical Society, will host a seminar titled "The Chemistry of Wine" at the Beachhaven Winery in Clarksville.

A tour, wine tasting, snacks and a discussion will kick off the March 24 event. Dr. J. Ernest Simpson of California State Polytechnic University in Pomona then will give a presentation.

The evening will wrap up with a 6 p.m. dinner at a local restaurant.

The event is open to everyone on campus. To attend the seminar or dinner, contact Donna Liverett by March 21 at 7626 or
