Wine & Cuisine Club

Wacc Logo

The Wine and Cuisine Club at Darden seeks to educate members about a broad range of cuisine and beverages including beer, wine and spirits. We help to facilitate the responsible enjoyment of food and drink through socially and culturally engaging events. Finally, we look to promote industry interaction and career development within these targeted areas.

Members of the Wine and Cuisine Club, along with leaders of other clubs, recently hosted a webinar sharing their experiences at Darden and what their clubs bring to the Darden community.
