Looking to wind down every once in a while with fellow UCF students? Even better, looking to WINE down with fellow UCF students? Well, there’s a club for that!
UCF’s wine club, which began in Spring 2014 by Professor Black at the UCF Rosen campus, serves as an opportunity for students to enhance their experiences and pallets when it comes to wine.
The club meets at the Rosen campus two Wednesdays a month at 7:15 P.M. , and you must be 21 or older to join.
What is it they do at these meetings? Drink wine, naturally! The members try a wine, or two, and discuss where the wine came from and the type of grapes used to make it.
Besides just meeting twice a month, the President, Breanna Giraldo, and Secretary, Kristen Kessler, have coordinated events to allow members to experience local wineries all with good company. The club has visited places such as The Wine Room in Winter Park.
The club is containing to grow, and hopes to one day be able to take a trip to Napa Valley to visit the vineyards and wineries across the nation.
Anyone interested in joining can look the club up on Facebook by searching “Wine Club at UCF”. There, you can find out when the next meeting is and start your journey to becoming wine savvy.
