Come to your (wine) senses, and don’t miss this night of alumni fun!

Spend an evening back on campus enjoying wine and beer from UC Davis Alumni Wine and Beer Partners, grubbing down on Buckhorn Steakhouse and Azteca Street Tacos, and rocking out (or casually listening, if that’s your thing) to 90s cover band @TotalRecall90s.

CAAA members will have the opportunity to experience a once-in-a-lifetime blind sensory wine tasting featuring wines from the past, present and future with alumnus Henry “Hoby” Wedler Ph.D. ’16. Blind sensory wine tasting is limited to 75 guests.
