Tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 19th, PBS will air The Grapes of Math as part of its Wired Science series (8 p.m. Ch. 9). The program claims to provide “a wine-tasting trip to some of California’s most technologically advanced vineyards”, and focusses on what correspondent Ziya Tong calls winemaking’s “dirty little secret”: the increasing use of science and technology by winemakers. She highlights two wineries in particular, Clos de la Tech, owned by T.J. Rogers, the founder and CEO of Cypress Semiconductor, and Havens Wine Cellars, owned by Michael Havens.
I’ll post comments after a thorough viewing.
