Our founder decided to start this group because she enjoyed wine and want to get to know other people in their 20s & 30s that like wine too.  It worked!  Since getting started in April 2010, we've had over 600 tastings, wineries, dinners, festivals, happy hours, parties, and other great events with more planned in the future!

We welcome men and women in their 20s & 30s that want to meet new people and enjoy good wine (and occasionally beer or cocktails too).  Our members range through all levels of experience with wine, so don't be scared if you are new to wine or consider yourself an expert!

We look forward to meeting you at our next event, so join us!

Our Wine Lovers Events:

We are the most active wine group on the East Coast!  Events are held throughout the DC, Virginia and Maryland areas, even as far as Delaware, PA and West Virginia!  Although we have over 2400 members in the group, the size of our events remain perfect for socializing and meeting new people. Our events include winery outings, happy hours, dinners, brunches, concerts, ski trips, beach weekend, and just about anything our great team of organizers can dream up! If we have wine, we have an event!

Our Non-Negotiable Rules for Joining:

While we are open to everyone joining, we are still a private group.  To join, you must use your real name (first name ok), answer all questions and have a real photograph of yourself that shows your face. (This helps the event organizers when we are trying to meet you at your first few events, and allows other wine lovers to recognize you as well.)  If you ignore these requirements simply to join the group, you'll be politely declined.

Love All, Respect All and Have Fun!

Note: All business related activities are headquartered out of Springfield, VA

Note on Photography: By joining this group, you accept that your photograph may be taken, posted, and possibly tagged with your name at events. If you wish to have an event photo deleted, please contact the Organizer.  If you are a professional photographer, who has no previous or current association with 20s & 30s Wine Lovers and you believe your work has been posted here without permission, please contact the Organizer in order to resolve the matter. 

Note on Sponsors:  Sponsors of the 20s & 30s Wine Lovers provide discounts to members of 20s & 30s Wine Lovers only, and do not contribute financially or otherwise to the group. The business practices of sponsors are those of the sponsor alone, and do not reflect the policies or conduct of 20s & 30s Wine Lovers. 

Solicitation: If you wish to set up an event with the Wine Lovers, please contact the organizer or an assistant organizer several weeks prior to the event. Mass solicitation via the meetup message function of the members of 20s & 30s Wine Lovers by businesses, those with "at home" businesses, and professional event organizers is strictly prohibited. (This applies to non-members & members of Wine Lovers.) Violation of this will lead to termination of membership and/or blocking.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
