San Diego--The Fleet Science Center announces its 2017 annual fundraiser event, Uncorking the Mysteries of Wine, a night of food and wine pairings with wine expert Gary Parker of The WineSellar & Brasserie and culinary guru Andrew Spurgin. The event takes place on Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Fleet Science Center.

Guests will begin the evening with fine wines and tasty hors d'oeuvres. All can partake in the silent auction featuring a variety of impressive wine lots, travel and dining packages and other exclusive experiences. More competitive guests can try their hand at the Wine Ring Toss, while the curious can explore a number of food- and wine-related science demos.
A sampling of silent auction items includes an exclusive trip on a sunset sailing cruise and a vertical selection of Tierra Rosa Cabernet (2011, 2012 and 2013).
The reception will be followed by a seated dinner featuring world-class wines curated by well-known local wine expert and owner of The WineSellar & Brasserie, Gary Parker. The wines will be paired with a sumptuous multi-course dinner prepared by San Diego's world-renowned culinary guru Andrew Spurgin. The dinner will also feature unique wine pairings, including three types of pinots; red, rosé and the rare white pinots.
The evening will culminate with a new Fleet video that brings the focus back to the Science Center's mission and highlights the Center's positive impact in local communities. 
The Uncorking the Mysteries of Wine fundraiser will directly support the Fleet Science Center's education programs, exhibits and ongoing initiatives. Together with the community, the Fleet works to create a San Diego where everyone can have access to and be inspired by the wonder of science.
