HKBU Wine Association comes second in inter-university competition
03 Jan 2017
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.
