The enjoyment of wine can be a lifelong adventure. The best thing about it is sharing it with like-minded people. Nothing stuffy. Just some fun, relaxed events that let the wine shine and expand everyone’s knowledge of the wines of the world. This group is for couples and singles.

While you don't need to be totally "grape savvy", I do ask that you are serious about enjoying and learning about wine and have the intention to actually attend events.  This is not a sit on the sidelines group and if you don't at least visit and see what's going on within a 3 month period, you will be removed.  We as a group also frown upon pedestrian and most supermarket wines as the whole point is to expand your breadth of wine experience by trying new ones.  Thoughtful selections are expected.

You can look at past events, but here are some events we've done in the last 4 years:
Local wine tasting at wine shops and bars like Wades, Woodland Hills Wine Co, Vino Wine and Tapas
BYOB parties in my home (e.g., Napa Cab night, Wines of Paso Robles, etc.)
Food pairing parties
Festivals - local, in Paso, West side, Thousand Oaks, Ojai, etc.
Trips to various CA wine regions
Free concerts in the park during the summer in Woodland Hills
Wine dinners out on the town, such as Dine LA restaurant week
Hollywood Bowl - at least once a year
The Wine Spectator Top 100 event - so popular it's a yearly member rivalry to get the wines and make the attendee list.

Most events will be proposed in the San Fernando Valley area, anywhere from Sherman Oaks to Thousand Oaks. I hope to entice people to venture out occasionally so that we can really experience some fine dining and wine festivals in other So CA areas. Activities will be proposed with estimated costs and guidelines.

I encourage suggestions from members as this should be an interactive group.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
