ELLENSBURG — A free presentation on why the Columbia Basin is good for viticulture, or the growing of wine grapes, is set for 7 p.m. Thursday in the Hebeler Hall Auditorium on campus at Central Washington University.

The presentation, by Kevin Pogue, geology professor from Whitman College, will be part of a meeting of the Ellensburg chapter of the nonprofit Ice Age Floods Institute, according to a news release.



The talk focuses on how the landscape, climate, geology and soils affect Columbia Basin viticulture.

The presentation is titled: “Geographical and Geological Influences on the Terroirs of the Columbia Basin.”
