What is PNRI’s Science & Wine Club?

A perfectly paired conversation series.

PNRI scientist + Washington winemaker + wine

And you are in the best seat to hear, to savor, and to ask questions.

THEME: ADVANCES IN TYPE 1 DIABETES RESEARCH

PNRI’s Dr. Bill Hagopian, MD, PhD, will provide an update on his research in Type 1 diabetes, the celiac connection, long-term clinic trials, and Type 1 research in general. Dr. Hagopian, always a lively and fascinating speaker, will also answer any questions.

SCIENTIST:
Dr. Bill Hagopian, MD, PhD is a practicing endocrinologist, PNRI Principal Investigator, and UW Clinical Professor of Medicine. His research centers on prediction and prevention of Type 1 diabetes in children and adults, from newborn screening for diabetes risk, to studies investigating the environmental triggers of diabetes, to clinical trials of immunotherapies to stop autoimmune diabetes before or at the clinical onset.

WINE:
Big John Caudill of Sheridan Vineyard will walk us through a tasting of some of Sheridan Vineyard’s tasty reds offered at a discount directly from the winery. Sheridan Vineyard’s big reds are regularly reviewed with terms like “wow” and ratings in the high 90’s. Big John Caudill is a longtime friend of PNRI and brings his passion and energy to wine tastings.

Wine packages offered from Sheridan Vineyard include two-pack combinations of these:
2019 Mystique Red Wine
2018 Syrah
2019 Boss Block Cab Franc (“arguably our best ever Cab Franc” – Big John Caudill)

To get more information and to order wine packages, please download the Sheridan Vineyard Wine Order Form and email it to Sheridan Vineyard @ Jenny@sheridanvineyard.com
