Wine Tasting With a Side of Sustainable Economic Development and UNC’s Galapagos Initiative

March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Click in via Zoom with the UNC General Alumni Association and Chufly Imports for an unforgettable virtual wine tasting to explore not only gorgeous wines but why sustainability matters. This unique and engaging event will pair award-winning wines from emerging wine regions in Bolivia with social impact.

Together we will sample three exquisite Bolivian wines and hear about UNC’s Galapagos Initiative, from the UNC Center for Galapagos Studies, which is celebrating 10 years of groundbreaking research, education and community outreach in the Galapagos Islands.  The mission of Chufly Imports is to drive sustainable economic development in emerging wine regions in Bolivia.

 Attendees will receive three wines by mail, and a fun, professionally guided wine tasting via Zoom. GAA members also receive premium sustainably sourced chocolate to pair with wine.
