ROGUE VALLEY WINE LOVERS & BEER APPRECIATORS ie RVWL
FREE TRIAL. We are a fun loving diverse group that love to learn about all of the great wines and beers that are available to us locally and close by. Many of us also love local dining opportunities which combines very readily with wine and/or beer.
We welcome couples, singles, any age over 21. We support local business, artists and musicians.
We are not a dating group, but rather a social group. We offer a friendly, inviting setting to enjoy outings while interacting. We also enjoy socializing while discovering new wines and brews, taking advantage of the beautiful Rogue Valley. We get together to try out new wines and beers, visit local (and rarely not so local) wineries and craft breweries, wine bars and many area events, including restaurants, music venues (concerts in the vines), wine events, park concerts and outside adventures .
We enjoying touring wineries, discovering the grape making process, from growing the grapes to final production. Some of us have made wine/beer, others have bottled wine/beer. We enjoy and support our local, developing wine region. We are learning about local varietals and the early grape growing history of our region.
We enjoy a wide variety of activities. We have attended ROAM THE ROGUE, APPLEGATE Un'CORKED, CHEESE & WINE FESTIVAL, WORLD OF WINES, BEAR CREEK WINERIES, and many more. We have zip lined, camped in trees, jet boat excursions/wine toured, rafted, rode horses, gone to baseball games and attended local theaters. We have toured wineries and breweries, bowled, played billiards and golf and finished with a lovely dinner/wine/beer. We have potlucks/wine tastings, holiday parties, dance.
We love opportunities for education and wine appreciation-- while having fun. Many of us are fine tuning our wine appreciation skills. Wine/food pairings, wine tastings, winery tours, spirits tours, brewery tours are all things we like to do.
Check out our past calendar to see what types of activities we have done. We are open to suggestions. We are diverse and as such offer many different experiences and opportunities to our members.
Yes we are taking new members. If you have a sponsor, ie. a current member who brings you to an event it will speed up the membership approval process. Please join us to view our events, look at our calendar, both past & future events. Although we encourage group activities, where you will meet many people and possible form new friendships. you can also attend calendar events on your own. The calendar offers a nice service to you, the member, to see local events in our area.
We do require fees for various reasons: 1st, there are internet dues associated with using this internet service, 2ndly it is a very reasonable amount for the amount of events planned. All take a lot of hours and time. 3rdly, it prevents spammers from joining us. 4thly, it helps lessen stalkers who might lurk and watch our members activities. Lastly, we are a strong member group and find that paid members participate more and good standings within the community. You tend to get better quality people when they have to pay. I do make arrangements if someone has an hardship, just ask. I have made special arrangements more than once for individuals. Fees are for the service provided and you only pay 2 consecutive years and then they are wavered. Thank you all! Your support is greatly appreciated.
