Bobby Lee Lawrence Academy of Wine
The Academy will have state-of-the-art wine cellars and storage facilities to house the Bobby Lee Lawrence Academy of Wine collection of exceptional wines, as well as Lawrence's library of wine books and other reference material.
The Bobby Lee Lawrence Academy of Wine is located in the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management and has nearby access to 100 West Café's kitchen and storage space. The Academy will serve as a training laboratory for students in the HRTM program and as a top-of-the-line space for exceptional events.
The high quality of wines that will seed the collection and the luxurious quality of the facilities ensures that the Academy of Wine will be a valuable addition to the HRTM program. This unique facility will be a lasting repository for knowledge of fine wine and cuisine providing exceptional educational opportunities for students in the HRTM program for years to come.
The Academy will also inspire surrounding communities, particularly those with emerging wine industries, to learn more about the field of wine. The vision is that the Academy reflects Bobby Lee's commitment to excellence, allowing the next generations of HRTM professionals to develop expertise in this important field.
