                                                                      SNOB FREE WINE™

If you love wine, enjoy learning about wine, and are open to enhancing your wine appreciation through actively participating in a variety of fun wine focused events, this group is for you!  Everyone is welcome from first time sippers to the seasoned taster.  We are not Snobs or pretentious wine drinkers though we do enjoy a good glass of wine and understand that It's all about Personal Taste!

                                                                Our Events Will Include:

          ~ Wine Tastings at various businesses in the Triangle and beyond
          ~ Wine Event Socials
          ~ Wine Education taught by a variety of local instructors
          ~ Wine and Food Pairing Events
          ~ Wine Dinners in small groups
          ~ Charity Wine & Food Events
          ~ Themed In-Home Wine Events and Parties co-hosted by group Members

This is not an exclusive list and we welcome suggestions from our members. We also encourage you to become an Event Host, whether it is at your favorite wine shop or opening up your home for a private event. The ideas are endless! 

Our vendor/venue events will focus on local, independently owned businesses and we encourage our members to do the same when considering a wine purchase or a night out. In order to learn about these businesses, we will visit many local wine merchants throughout the Triangle as part of our regular events. Members will also receive notifications of other wine events of interest or special happenings in the area from time to time as we work to build a strong community of wine lovers.

We are the Original SNOB FREE WINE™ Meetup Group and consist of a very diverse group of single, married and partnered adults of all ages, nationalities, etc., and membership is free to anyone over 21. Please note that some of our events will require you to show an ID so please bring it along!  Although some events are free, most will require payment of some amount, whether a small fee for a wine tasting, the purchase of glasses and/or bottles, or a deposit or full prepayment for an event.

We are not a dating or pick-up group, and the safety and privacy of our members is a priority. For this reason, a recent Profile Photo of yourself is Required to Join & Remain a Member.

As a Member of the group, we ask that you drink responsibly and are respectful of others at our events and on our site. By becoming a Member of the group, you AGREE to abide by the SNOB FREE WINE™ Meetup Group Policies which can be found in the "Pages" section located on the banner of this Meetup.

My goal for SNOB FREE WINE™ is to share my love of wine with the group while working to bring you interesting, educational and most of all FUN wine events, something for each of your varied interests as we sip our way through this vast world of wine! Enjoying wine should be all about personal taste and what makes you happy! Hope you will join us at an event soon!

Santé! Jacqui

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.
