The Idea of Wine with Professor Pierre Ly, 5:00 pm PST

Wine glass with university logo

Through wine you can see and experience the world, but what is the truth behind this complicated and contested beverage? Come and learn more about the political, social, and economic forces that impact and influence the world of wine while you enjoy a glass of your choosing. We will be discovering these connections with Pierre Ly, Professor and Director, International Political Economy, at a virtual wine event hosted on Logger Day Challenge, March 9th, 2021, at 5 pm PST.

Attendance is limited, be sure to register today to reserve your spot. If you would like to participate in the wine tasting (and support alumni vintners!) consider one of the suggested wines.
