CHS Rocky Mountain Chapter: Cornell vs. the Rest of the Wine World

On Sunday, May 22, 2022 thirty members of the CHS Colorado Rocky-Mountain Chapter gathered at alumni Juliette Boone‘s (‘93 & ‘97) house to taste 5 varietals grown by Cornell Alumni winemakers against the same varietals grown elsewhere in the world.  The tasting was guided by certified sommelier Kate Sequeira ’11.  Co-host included Kubs Lalchandani ‘99 & ‘04, Erik Nylen ‘81, Kate Sequeira ‘11, Raina Taillon ‘11 and Melissa Triplett ‘85.

The Hotelies in attendance were transported back to “Wines” class.  They tasted each wine and learned about the Cornell alumni involved with producing them.  Attendees enjoyed appetizers, a raffle, and gathering with fellow Colorado Hotelies again in person!


CHS Rocky Mountain Samples Alumni Beers

The CHS Rocky Mountain Chapter hosted a beer tasting with SHA Lecturer, Doug Miller, on Sunday, April 7, 2019. The theme of the event was Cornellians in the Beer Industry, representing beers from breweries managed or owned by a Cornellian. The beers were graciously donated by Ithaca Beer, Mill House Brewing Company, Monday Night Brewing, Funkwerks, and Roadhouse Brewing Company. It was a great opportunity to sample new beers and learn more about flavors, styles, and production!
