Fire and Wine: How Wildfire Affects Your Cabernet

Thu, February 16, 2023 12:00 am – 12:00 am
The Commons, KQED Headquarters 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

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

Join KQED climate reporter Danielle Venton and Check, Please! Bay Area host and wind 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.
