      A winery experimenting with aging wine in the ocean is unveiling a mural at the site of its planned education center and tasting room in Charleston.

      Mira Winery of St. Helena, California, plans to open the center this fall, and on Tuesday is unveiling a mural on the side of the building in the city's historic district.

      The winery has been aging wine in Charleston harbor and studying the results to get a better idea of what effects ocean aging has on wine.

      The education center this fall will provide visitors a look at the winemaking process. There will be tastings but only by appointment for Mira wine club members as required by state law.

      Mira is owned by Charleston resident Jim "Bear" Dyke Jr.
