Simon UNcorked - 730 x 400

Simon UNcorked

Simon UNcorked was founded on the belief that our students should take advantage of every opportunity to set themselves apart from other members of the business community. Beer, wine, and spirits have become an important part of the business networking culture and without a solid foundation and education, you can find yourself in embarrassing situations. For example, suppose you are hosting a business dinner. You carefully researched the restaurant's wine list in preparation for the dinner and selected a wine you thought would be ideal. Upon being seated at dinner, the waiter informs you that they are out of the wine and asks you to make another selection. WHAT DO YOU DO?!
