My dear friends,
The Renaud Society wine competitions recognize many fine wines produced throughout the world. It is my honor to have my name and likeness affixed to the gold tastevin awarded to the competition winners.
Wine brings better health and happiness to family and friends, who share this beverage of life at their tables. The art and science of wine lends academic and intellectual challenges to the producers and the consumers alike. It is a most stimulating subject!
To those who enter the competition, I wish you a bon chance!
To those of you who seek a fine wine at your dinner table, I encourage you to review the archives of these competitions, and enjoy the many wines that have been recognized by our society.
My personal regards to each of you,
Serge Charles Renaud, PhD
Maître D'Honneur, The Renaud Society

The enjoyment of wine is best celebrated among friends, family, and colleagues who, together, appreciate the value that wine brings to the table and to life. Wine is complex, and lends itself to study and contemplation. Wine preserves time and history beneath the cork, but, once consumed is gone forever.
