Saturday, September 17, 2016, 5 pm to 7 pm Ridgefield Library $45. Making wine is a highly interdisciplinary art—blending horticulture, chemistry, biology, mechanics, the senses, creativity, and more—in both the vineyard and the winery. Discover how master sommeliers learn to understand wine, what's happening in the brain when we taste and smell wine—and how this knowledge and experience is transferred to others. Practice looking at, smelling, and tasting wines as the experts do, while sampling four Connecticut wines from Hopkins Vineyard. Presenters: Steven T. Dahlberg, director, International Centre for Creativity & Imagination, New Milford, CT; and James Baker, Hopkins Vineyard winemaker and Vineyard manager, Warren, CT
