What is the connection between Wine & Stone?
Genetically, all chardonnays are the same. Geologically, all marbles are the same. Soil composition and climate affect the way a wine tastes. Mineral composition and formation affect the way a stone looks. Teach your audience WHY with this CEU event package by Women in Stone (powered by  Natural Stone Institute).
