THE WINE ENTHUSIAST COMMITTEE PRESENTS
INTERNATIONAL WINE TASTING
Saturday, March 23rd 2013
The is honored to invite you at the Ecole hĂ´teliĂ¨re de Lausanne on Saturday, March 23rd 2013 at 15:00 for MillĂŠsime 3rd Edition, a blind tasting competition between students of renowned schools & universities.
What is Millésime ? Three years ago, three students asked themselves how they could bring together passionate students from diverse countries, wine makers and professionals around the same table for a proactive exchange on wines. Inspired by the work of other schools around Europe, they created a wine tasting where students could challenge each other’s knowledge. Among this experience, Millésime also offers an opportunity in networking and exchange between wine professionals, young consumers and future managers.
Finally, Millésime presents an opportunity to promote the diversity and the quality of Swiss wines and gastronomy to the students of various countries. Therefore, we offer you an experience combined between a Swiss themed dinner with food and wine pairing made exclusively by the local wine makers.
Your Millésime 2013 Team looks forward welcoming you!

“We all had the most fantastic time at Millésime 2012! It was also our first introduction to Swiss wine and all our team came away with a
new appreciation of this very special terroire. For me though, what made Millésime really stand out and shine was the amazing
hospitality and professionalism of the organizers. They made the trip a delight, as they were so generous and welcoming. We can't wait to
send another team next year!” Hannah Price (2012 Winner) – University of Cambridge , UK « Organized in the hearth of EHL, I truly appreciated the atmosphere, the welcoming and the dinner that were matching the high reputation of this school. What I preferred was the diversity of the wines (especially the Swiss wines) and the intervention of several Swiss wine-makers, commenting on their own products. I have a very precise memory from the « Petite Arvine » from the Cottagnoud family. » Chabbert Benjamin - EM Lyon, France
