Fire and Wine: How Wildfire Affects Your Cabernet

Date and Time
Thursday, February 16, 2023 7:00 PM (PT)

How is fire changing wine and wine production in Northern California?

Join KQED climate reporter Danielle Venton and Check, Please! Bay Area host and wine expert Leslie Sbrocco for a science and tasting event to compare wines from smoke-tainted and unaffected grapes.

Then, North Bay Jobs with Justice will share how the industry's agricultural laborers are protecting themselves, and Planet Labs will zoom out for a look at satellite imagery of smoke and fire affecting the wine-producing region.

Stick around for (untainted) wine and cheese afterwards, to bring down the heat!

Wine tasting included in ticket price. Must be 21 years old to partake.
