Madrid, Spain – IE Wine Industry Club has organized an event with Rafael del Rey, Manager of the Foundation for the Culture of Wine to share the cultural importance of wine associated with the history of Spain and provide a nostalgic experience for the students with respect to tastings of a variety of wines.

He also explained the various types of wines and differences among the white, red, rose, sparkling and other wines. The audience was thrilled to know the great variety of wines and the production processes of these wines by various wine manufacturers.

After this, Ms.Maria Antonia, the popular wine consultant spend 75 minutes explaining the “wine tasting process”. In her view, one has to first experience the color (light, intense, dark), then move on to smell the aroma (fruity, floral, herbal, citrus, etc.) and then experience the tasting. The association provided the rarest opportunity for the students to experience five variety of wines (two white and three red) manufactured by best wine manufacturers such as Muga, La Rioja, Terras Guada and Vega Sicilia in Spain.

Club Activities

We had organized Wine Tasting events, by bringing world class wine makers and inviting various dignitaries, staff and student communities. We are also trying to nurture corporate relations with the wine industry to build potential future employment opportunities for the students.

Our Vision

We are currently in talks with some multi-national (Foundation for the Culture of Wine in Spain) wine producers who want to sponsor wine-tasting events. We are also planning to organize a joint event with other in-house clubs to market our club and get more traction to our events. In the near future, we are planning to conduct trips to wine yards.

Get in touch and participate!

We always welcome anyone who is interested in joining our initiatives. Anyone can contact me or Raviteja to join as a member but we would like to interact with him/her if he/she wants to be part of the board. Also, we encourage students and their partners to visit one of our activities to understand better our events, club culture, provide ideas and spread the word.
