On Tuesday I hosted the San Jose Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Younger Member Forum. Civil Engineer and Officer Matt Bower put it simply – “we work on the city’s infrastructure” – from buildings to roads to reservoirs.
That being said, there were some great questions including “what is the soil like in the Nahe region?” – thoughtful questions that we like to hear! Given the rocky terrain of the region, the soil definitely played a part in the mineral and slate he tasted in the wine.
The crowd was quite engaged in both the tasting and conversations amongst their peers. Overall a successful event with great folks, great food and great wine.
