Left Bank Bordeaux Cup (LBBC) is an international wine tasting competition for university students. Since 2013, a team of 3 students from HKUST has been competing against other universities in Hong Kong Round. The winning team will make a trip to France for the final competition against top-notch universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, UCLA, Harvard Business School, Yale Law School, some other 'Ivy League' universities, etc.
Being Hong Kong Round Champion in 2017 & 2018, our teams represented Hong Kong in the final round held at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux (France) and competed against other international teams. This year, we participated in LBBC virtually and became Hong Kong Round Champion once again.
At the start of the academic year, the HKUST Wine Team and Alumni Wine Association (HKUSTAWA) are recruiting participants for the LBBC competition.
