Competition Team

The DeVinimus Wine Tasting Competition Team participates in the annual Left Bank Bordeaux Cup, a wine tasting competition held for wine appreciation clubs from universities worldwide. The teams compete in elimination-style rounds, with the final round taking place in Bordeaux, France. The competition has both a wine tasting component and a knowledge component. Each year, our team hones their tasting skills and knowledge of the Left Bank Bordeaux region with weekly or bi-weekly practice sessions, with the guidance of team coaches Bob Cunningham and Robin Kelley O’Connor.

Please stay tuned for more information about tryouts for the 2019-2020 competition.
