If you like wine and food, this group is for you. This group was started as a place to find other people who want to learn about wine and food in a casual, fun, and stimulating setting. This is not a dating or pick-up group. We meet at least once per month at a local venue that allows us to bring our own wine.

There are so many great places in and around Portland that are BYO/BYOB we can enjoy wine and food in a casual, fun, interesting, affordable atmosphere. I have access to great wine and I am always looking to enjoy it with like minded people.

I am a wine educator, wine writer, and former retailer. For over 15 years I have owned and operated a wine education and wine tasting company, Vin de Vin Wine Tasting and Collecting Consultants, www.vindevin.com.

Since I love wine, food, and socializing, I have been lucky enough to discover many places that are wine friendly and love to host groups like ours. My aim is to promote the love of wine by providing other wine lovers the chance to learn about the wonderful world of wine and sample world-class vino as we socialize and meet a diverse group of people with similar interests. Our primary emphasis is to have fun by fusing these three activities - enjoying wine, food and meeting interesting people.

The venues of our meetings will generally be BYO/BYOB restaurants whenever possible, that also offer to great food and ambiance.

We plan to taste wines from all over the world that have been rated by The Wine Advocate, International Wine Cellars, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast magazines, James Halliday, Jancis Robinson, and other renowned experts.

Everyone is welcome! From new people to wine, to long time wine lovers. So lets join up and have fun meeting and mingling while indulging in three of life's most satisfying pleasures - PEOPLE, WINE & FOOD. CHEERS!!!
