Selecting the Stanford Wines

Each spring for the past 37 years, alumni in the wine industry have gathered on campus to help select the wines to offer for the Stanford Wine Collection.

The tasting panel samples wines from dozens of West Coast wineries. The wines are arranged in flights – the bottles are wrapped and the panelists do not know the producers or the vintages of the wines.

The judges rank the wines and assign points based on the Davis 20-point scale. After nearly two hours of sipping and swirling in library-like conditions, the judges submit their tasting cards. The results are tabulated and the wines are selected. The guidance and expertise of our alumni panel is essential to the success of this program.

Cheers to our alumni wine experts!
