It’s wine tasting with a twist today in the Applegate Valley, where nine wineries plan tasting along with lessons about the science in what they do.

The event, Applegate Valley uncorked, is set from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the wineries and vineyards. The cost is $40.

The curriculum at the “wine universities” varies depending on the winery. Presentations at each of the wineries will start on the hour and last 20 to 25 minutes.

Participants can choose their own routes and can buy tickets at the first winery they visit.

Tickets include a crystal glass and a boxed lunch, along with the tastings and presentations. Boxed lunches can be picked up at Bridgeview Winery tasting room, 16995 N. Applegate Road (about 1.8 miles west of Ruch).

Details: 846-9900, 800-781-9463 or 846-6364.
