Cancer is always very personal. Ever since the tragic death of their 3-year-old daughter, Robin, from cancer, President George Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush have been inspired and motivated to fight this terrible disease. Robin's passing was a turning point in their lives, stirring their lifetime commitment to do whatever they could to bring an end to cancer.

On September 28, a much anticipated exhibit was unveiled at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. The Culture of Wine unravels the mystery, magic, and making of wine.
From the moment our visitors step into the exhibit's vineyard, they begin to learn about viticulture, including differences in soil types, vineyard management practices, and harvest techniques. The exhibit's accurate attention to detail and the realism achieved by blending vineyard and winery equipment with stunning photo murals set the exhibit apart and immerse each visitor in the winegrowing process. Throughout the exhibit, every section is a learning experience emphasizing how a good winemaker combines techniques and processes he can control with what Mother Nature provides in a growing season to produce distinctive wines.
