Scholar Wine was concocted by three philanthropically-minded oenophiles at Santa Clara University who wanted to generate overflowing scholarship funds while pouring glasses of joy for fellow wine-lovers. Today, our founders are thrilled to work alongside seasoned, enthusiastic, and professional volunteers.
