PGK: Summer Lustrum Event – Vineyard visit
We will pay a visit to the vineyard the Amsteltuin in Amstelveen. Where we will get a lecture about Wine & Geology by Anco Lankreijer and a tour of the vineyard & tasting. About Anco: He got his PhD at the VU Amsterdam, studying plate tectonics in Central and Eastern Europe. After that he was involved in organizing academic education, initially at the VU and later in Utrecht. He is now working at the international Amsterdam University College where he teaches in the Earth and Environment track as a part of the Liberal Arts and Science study.
His interest in the relationship between wine and geology has its origin in his many field trips in Eastern Europe. Which factors play an important role for the specific taste of the wine and can you taste the subsurface, and maybe even the “source” rock?!
