HKBU Wine Association comes second in inter-university competition

浸大品酒學會贏香港大專葡萄酒挑戰賽亞軍

The three-member team of Kiki Chu, Felix Tin (both Year 4, Government and International Studies) and Abbey Li (Year 4, Finance) from the Wine Association of Hong Kong Baptist University won the first runner-up prize at the 2016 Hong Kong Inter-University Wine Challenge. The contest was organised by the Hong Kong Wine Chamber of Commerce at the Hong Kong Wine and Spirits Fair.

The contest was divided into three parts – multiple choice questions, blind tasting and a wine promotion session. The goal is to strengthen the promotion of wine culture and education and also to offer students insights into the societal value of wine.
   
The team said that although they didn't win the championship, they learned a great deal about wine and gained valuable experience from taking part in the competition. They expressed their gratitude to the University for its great support.

香港浸會大學品酒學會三位成員朱嘉祺同學、田宜鉅同學 (政治及國際關係四年級) 與李照濛同學 (財務學四年級),早前代表大學參加由香港葡萄酒商會首次於香港國際美酒展舉辦的「香港大專葡萄酒挑戰賽2016」,贏得比賽亞軍。

整項比賽分三部份:問答題、蒙瓶試飲題和推介葡萄酒環節,目的是向大學生推廣葡萄酒文化和知識,讓他們了解葡萄酒的社交價值。

代表隊成員表示縱然今次未能贏得冠軍,但亦從比賽過程中學習到不少葡萄酒的知識和難得的比賽經驗。代表隊感謝大學給予的鼎力支持。
