At the end of January, on a Friday evening, 36 IE students and alumni from various programs came together to enjoy an evening of wine tasting. The event, which sold out in less than 48 hours, was a joint venture between IE Women in Business and IE Wine Industry Club and provided a fun and educational experience for the community by connecting IE students from different programs and language tracks. It also created awareness of both clubs.
The event was partnered with Bodegas Bohórquez, whose vertical wine tasting showcased the role of the weather in wine production. Bohórquez president, Javier Bohórquez, provided three vintages from 2004 – 2006 and talked the group through the differences between each vintage and their causes. By the end of a great evening participants had chosen their favourite wine and discussed their preferences with each other and Javier.
