Wine tasters can practice saying “salute” and “cheers, mate” at the Robert Mondavi Institute’s “Taste of the World” multi-weekend fundraising event.

UC Davis professor David Block, who is also the chair of the department of viticulture and enology, will take tasters Down Under as they enjoy eight Australian wines at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Silverado Vineyards Sensory Theater, a space created especially for sensory tastings.

The spotlight shifts to Italy on Friday, March 22, as UCD professor Andrew Waterhouse explains the subtle European flavors.

Last stop on the tour is South Africa on Friday, April 26. This event will be led by UCD professor Anita Oberholster, who was born in South Africa. She joined the UCD staff in 2011.

A full-series pass is $200 general, $150 for Friends of the RMI, UC faculty, staff and students. A single-day pass is $75/$60. A majority of the proceeds will benefit Broadening Horizons, an initiative to increase the number of underrepresented students in the food science and technology, and viticulture and enology departments at UCD.
