Last week, DeVinimus hosted a second Bordeaux tasting! This time, we were led through some of the wines of the Medoc with wine expert Dewey Markham Jr., author of Wine Basics and 1855: A History of the Bordeaux Classification.
We had a blast at our first Bordeaux tasting of the year with Château Latour-Martillac – a full house turned up to learn about the history of the winemaker and taste seven of their fantastic wines.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and making this a successful tasting – see you on October 9 for our next tasting! (Look out for an email with the RSVP information)
Last week, we hosted our first tasting of the semester: Wines 101. Over the course of the evening, our advisors Robert Cunningham and Robin Kelley O’Connor led us through the basics of wine tasting as we sampled twelve wines.
Thank you to everyone who came out – we look forward to seeing you at our next tasting: Chateau Latour-Martillac, tonight (September 23)!
On Monday, September 16, we will host our annual Wine 101 tasting. At the beginning of every school year, we host this educational tasting to give the wine-beginners among us a bit of foundational wine knowledge. We have selected a wide variety of wines making this tasting a great way to figure out your wine preferences.
As a reminder, you must RSVP in order to attend our tastings: RSVP here for Wines 101. Tastings are sit-down events, during which the guest wine experts give detailed presentations on the wine and walk everyone through the tasting glass-by-glass.
Below, you can find links to some supplemental materials that will be helpful for the tasting:
On September 3, DeVinimus welcomed the newest 1Ls and LLMs to Columbia Law School with a wine and cheese mixer. We had a great time getting to know our newest classmates and members!
Happy last day of classes to all CLS students! Now that our 3Ls have (almost) become alumni, we are giving our outgoing DeVinimus presidents a proper send-off in our first ever logo apparel!
Thank you to Paul Stretton and Mike D’Andrea for all their hard work, service, and commitment to the organization and the Columbia community over the past three years. After three years of tasting set-ups and clean-ups, Finger Lakes retreats, and board socials, you’ve finally made it to your last law school class ever. Your success is well-deserved and you will be greatly missed. Congratulations, good luck, and remember: “When people drink, then they are rich and successful and win lawsuits and are happy and help their friends.” – Aristophanes.
