Now called the Winkler Dinner at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science, this event has been our main fundraiser for the past eight years and will beheld at our new facilities for the first time. The Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science is the most advanced research and teaching facility of its kind in the world. This is the setting for our education and research, the base of our knowledge as we go forward. The Winkler Dinner is an opportunity of you to support the educational development of our students and help shape the future of the industry.

The Davis Enology and Viticulture Organization (DEVO) is a club founded by students of the Viticulture & Enology Department at the University of California, Davis. Student members of DEVO organize events including social mixers with faculty and members of industry, as well as several immersion trips to winegrowing regions both local and abroad. Funds raised by DEVO are also used to create a scholarship to support select members who plan to work an internship outside the US. Tickets are available for $175, or a table of 8 for $1,200.
