I enjoy wine and would like to learn about the wine industry, and the process of making wine, from picking the grapes to bottling to consumption. I am also looking to start a career in the wine industry.
This group is for the general public to enjoy wine and socialize. Whatever wine you like is OK here, because this group is not for the wine industry or the "wine expert" snobs. The organizer is not part of the wine industry and does not take money or gifts from the wine industry, e.g., no web site sponsors. Therefor, we don't promote or push any wine brands on our web site.
We only go to nice QUIET uncrowded venues. None of our photos are of paid professional models, just us. Our wine meetups are usually close to BART stations to make it easy for people around the Bay Area to attend.
This wine group puts the wine drinkers 1st, the wine 2nd, the wine industry 3rd, and the "wine experts" last. I have turned down all wine industry companies, about 20, offering me money to promote their services on this web site.
UNCORKING NEWS: August 10th: We go to the Barrel Room wine bar which recently moved to the historic building at 415 Sansome Street, San Francisco.
