A quick reminder that the UCD Extension is offering another of their excellent Wine Flavor 101 symposia on April 18, 2013. This one will focus on Oxygen in Wine:

Save the Date: Thursday April 18, 2013

We are quickly closing in on the actual date for our 2012-13 WineFlavor101D: Oxygen in Wine class to be held Thursday, April 18, 2013 at Freeborn Hall on the UC Davis campus. There are a few spaces available today, but last-minute registrations are usually pretty heavy, so you’re encouraged to check the registration website below to see if there is still room when you receive this notice. We always keep a waiting list, so if you’re already registered and have to cancel, please give us enough time to allow someone else to have your tasting space.
