HKUST Alumni Wine Association

HKUST Alumni Wine Association (HKUSTAWA) was founded by a group of wine enthusiasts in October 2016. Our vision is to promote wine culture and responsible drinking among alumni and current students.

​Since our inauguration, we have connected 300+ alumni over glasses of wines through our workshops and gatherings. Different styles of events have brought our members and friends fun time, thus created a HKUST's wine community for wine knowledge exchange or simply enjoyment with wine buddies.

We strive to bring members more benefits, from discounts on wines & spirits purchases, special offers at restaurants & bars, to promotional offers on wine events in town. The more wines you taste, the more you learn.
