Gregor Mendel spent most of his life, studying and conducting his pea experiments on the Laws of Inheritance in the charming and fertile wine region of Southern Moravia. To this day, this area is dotted with romantic villages, majestic castles, and UNESCO Heritage sites; yet, it is also booming with progress and prominent universities and research institutes on the verge of the world’s next great scientific discovery. Hear, see, and taste the region via a talk, photos, song and, of course, wine.
