Student group sponsors wine, cheese tasting

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Wine and CheeseThe best wines you’ve never tasted will be featured in the Sept. 24 wine and cheese tasting sponsored by the K-State student chapter of Professional Convention Management Association.

Wines to be sampled retail for $15 to $20 a bottle. They include sparkling, white, red and dessert wines such as Ca Vittoria Prosecco from Italy, Gysler Silvaner Halbtrocken from Germany, Olivares Altos de la Hoya Monastrell from Spain and the French Le Tertre du Lys Sauternes.

Each will be paired with exotic and traditional cheeses.

The event will be from 5 to 7 p.m. in Hoffman Lounge, Justin Hall, on the K-State campus. Tickets cost $10 for students over 21 and $15 for faculty and guests. Tickets are available by contacting ksupcma10@gmail.com or a PCMA student representative.

Profits will go toward student expenses at the annual association meeting in Las Vegas and other chapter travel. Some funds will be donated to Manhattan emergency shelter, the chapter’s charity.

Chad Bowman, account manager at LDF Sales and Distributing, is donating the wine. He teaches wine classes in the Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics.

Students pulling the event together are Breana Hennes, Tara Farley, Kyle Ledford, Kristin Smith, Megan Ferguson, Jen Larsen, Gretchen Smiley, Rhonda Cameron and Mallory Menard.

Dr. Betsy Barrett is the chapter sponsor.
