Alumnus Will Jarvis’ Harker-nurtured wine has won a gold medal in the Beverage Testing Institute 2009 World Wine Championships for his Cabernet Franc, “Will Jarvis’ Science Project 2007.” Jarvis developed the prototype for his wine in a science experiment in Gr. 8 while at Harker.” Read the full story of Jarvis’ experiment and development of the wine! “We didn’t know what to expect when we tried Will’s original Science Project blend a few years ago,” said Will’s father William Jarvis, president of JARVIS. “The outcome was sensational, though, and our winemaker, Dimitri Tchelistcheff, agreed. So it was from Will’s original experiment that this new wine was born.” The wine, which earned the Gold Medal & Cellar Selection awards Aug. 19, is one of four JARVIS wins at the tasting. Several of the wines, including “Science Project,” have been prizes for Harker fundraisers.
