The UNLV College of Hospitality Wine Society

There is a lot of information about winemaking and wine tasting available today which can be daunting and confusing.  Fortunately, with a little help and support through The UNLV College of Hospitality Wine Society you can gain lots of wine wisdom (and confidence). Through educational wine workshops, you will have the opportunity to learn more about wine, wine history, winemaking, wine tasting, food and wine pairing. 

Getting Involved

The student organization holds meetings throughout each semester. Visiting speakers from the trade, press and the wine education sectors will be invited to present interactive workshops both virtually and on campus to members of the UNLV College of Hospitality Wine Society. Active student members will have the opportunity to win merit-based scholarships to sit for wine certificate exams.
