Left Bank Bordeaux Cup

Left Bank Bordeaux Cup (LBBC) (formerly ’20 vin Sur’ before 2012) used to be a wine competition among wine clubs at leading Paris higher education institutions. Since 2012, the competition has opened up for students outside France to participate. Students from prestigious French schools, as well as Oxford and Cambridge, and other elite business schools in North America and Asia have taken part in the competition. Nowadays, there are two rounds of competitions in Asia: one being held in Hong Kong, another in Shanghai. The champion in each of these rounds is then qualified for the final held every year in June.

Final at Bordeaux again!

Teamwork makes dream work. After a year of cancellation and virtual finals held last year, the 2022 LBBC qualifiers can finally compete physically in Bordeaux! With no prior wine tasting experience, our 2022 wine team won the HK-Asia round then headed to Bordeaux after 8 months of practices and coaching led by our alumni and past wine teams.

Hong Kong Championship for another year

The pandemic has brought unusual challenge to our wine team - competition was cancelled in 2020 and no one knew what's next. Yet, our team members being true wine lovers have never stopped tasting and exploring the wine world. Finally in 2021, they became Hong Kong Champion and eventually the second runner-up at the final competition held virtually.
