Thank you for coming out: Wines 101

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)!

Wines 101: Event Details and Materials

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:

Chateau Kirwan Tasting

What: Chateau Kirwan Tasting (classified Margaux from Bordeaux)
When: Thursday, April 27 at 7:30pm
Where: JG 104

Happy last week of classes! We know it’s finals time so everyone (except maybe 3Ls…) is hitting the books, but we have one more Devinimus event this semester to invite you to. We are excited to host Chateau Kirwan, a third growth classified Margaux from Bordeaux (Don’t know what that means? Clink the link to find out!). Chateau Kirwan makes great Bordeaux wines, and we think that if any event can tempt you to take a (probably well-needed) study break, it should be this one.

Because it’s getting close to finals and we know it may be harder for some people to make this event, we are letting any Devinimus member bring a guest for free. So, if you have a friend who you think needs a break from holing up in the Law Library, RSVP and add a guest for this one. We hope to see as many people as possible on Thursday for our last event!
