Chinese University of Hong Kong The Wine Society was founded by a group of wine lovers in 2011 and it is the first wine society established at university level. The Society organizes regular wine tasting workshops, wine dinners, visits to vineyards, wine companies and international wine fairs. Every year, the Society sends members to take part in the Left Bank Bordeaux Cup. In 2011, we were awarded World No.2.
