WineLab at MOD. Blending wine, art and science

WineLab at MOD.


WineLab at MOD. will host some of the most innovative names in the South Australian wine industry including Longview, Shut the Gate, The Pawn Wine Co., Zonte's Footstep, Levrier by Jo Irvine, Deviation Road, Karrawatta, Bleasdale and Dowie Doole while uncovering how art and science can play a crucial and sometimes unseen influence on the way we experience wine.

WineLab is an opportunity to link wine, art and science for after-work drinks with a twist, hosted within the superb surrounds of MOD. - the ideal location for a collection of pop-up talks by wine scientists and aficionados:

  • Staff from the Australian Wine Research Institute will offer an interactive wine sensory experience that will tantalise the taste buds and confound the senses in exploring the human palate.
  • Armando Corsi, Senior Marketing Scientist at the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute for Marketing Science at UniSA, in association with the Australian Wine Flavour card, will explore the Chinese Lexicon Project, translating western tastes into Asian flavours, exploring the taste buds of the Chinese market for Australian wine.
  • Graham Ellender from the University of Adelaide will present a talk on wine and the perception of flavour, particularly in relation to extrinsic factors that affect perception like music, glassware and mood. 

As a pop-up event, no tickets are pre-sold or bookings required for guests to attend - they simply collect a souvenir wine glass on entry for $5 to use on the night and take home with them. Wines will be available for purchase from 5pm-8pm with free wine tastings on offer between 5pm-6pm. A delicious selection of grazing table treats will be provided by Food Lore Kitchen.

This event is brought to you by the South Australian Wine Industry Association; Adelaide: A Great Wine Capital of the World; and MOD. at UniSA.
