Toasting WSU V&E achievements, June 2015

Did we mention the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center opened June 4?!

Caroline Merrell is pursuing her PhD in food science at the center with help from a recently awarded $3,500 American Wine Society Educational Foundation scholarship. The funds will go toward her wine chemistry research with WSU Enologist Jim Harbertson. Merrell is from Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and received a B.S. in Chemistry from Bucknell University before studying at WSU.
