Gabriel Valentin ’02 (St. Just le Martel, France), president of the Wine Society, will lead a tasting session on the theme “Bordeaux’s Vintages from 1970 to 1980” 8-9:30 p.m. today in the Faculty Dining Room, Marquis Hall.

Featured wines will be Chateau La Fleur-Petrus, 1970; Cos d’Estournel, 1978; Chateau La Lagune, 1979; and Chateau Carbonnieux, 1980. The event costs $6 for non-members of the Wine Society.

“I will lead the wine tasting myself, which is pretty exciting for me as it will be my first time,” says Valentin, an economics and business major. “I am not an expert, so my point is not to show that I know about wine, but so people can learn something and interact with each other in their tasting experience.”

A brief ceremony will be held after the tasting to announce the Wine Society president for 2002-2003, Metin Aslantas ’03, an electrical and computer engineering major from Istanbul, Turkey, and to present a plaque to adviser Ed Gamber, associate professor of economics and business.

The tasting is the final event of the year for the Wine Society. Last week, Andrew Fix, professor and head of history, spoke on “The Home Vineyard” at a noon brown bag.
