We learn many lessons and we are capable of transmitting them. It’s been fun to watch our partners and the fake shots have been even more fun.
IMS school visit to Mallia Winery.Our science students visited the KEO Winery in Mallia, accompanied by their chemistry teachers. The students were shown around the plant and the staff explained the essentials of wine making, from harvest to fermentation to bottling. The students also took part in some simple QC analysis performed in the lab on wine samples. We don’t know how many of them were convinced to devote their future careers to the wine-making industry after this elucidating visit, but we definitely know how many of them wanted to try the wine.
