On Friday, November 16th, 2012, The Environmental Law Program hosted its annual Wine Tasting Party: Nature’s Thanks for Preserving the Earth with another large turnout of alumni, students and faculty. The event was a huge success with approximately 200 students, faculty and alums tasting 86 different wines from a dozen countries. The winetasting featured several aged Bordeauxs, including a 1982 Pichon Lalande and a 1983 Margaux, as well as vintage ports from 1970 and 1977, and old California cabernets. It also included the 2012 Beaujolais Nouveau, just bottled and flown over the day before from France. The mystery wine, which once again stumped the crowd, was a 2010 Gruner Veltliner from Austria.
The Annual Wine Tasting Party is tentatively scheduled for the third Friday of every November from this point forward. Mark your calendars!
