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! We are not Snobs or pretentious wine drinkers though we do enjoy a good glass of wine and are open to sharing information about wine and food as we create a unique Snob Free wine community. Everyone is welcome from first time sippers to the seasoned taster. We will learn that there are great wines in all price ranges and being Snob Free is not the same as being "cheap".

Snob Free is about attitude, not price

Our Events will Include:

  • Wine Tastings at various businesses or other venues in the Triangle and beyond
  • 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 members of the group

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

As the Organizer for SNOB FREE WINE™, I will try to work with local, independently owned businesses in the area and encourage our members to do the same when you consider purchasing wine. In order to learn about these businesses, we will try and visit many of the local wine merchants as part of our regular events.

We have 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 will be free to attend, most will require payment of some amount, whether it is a small fee for tasting, purchasing of glasses of wine and/or bottles and, in some cases, a deposit or full prepayment will be required to attend.

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.

We also ask that you drink responsibly, are respectful of others and that you abide by the SNOB FREE WINE Meetup Group Policies which can be found in the Pages Section located on the banner of this meetup. This includes our Late Cancel / No Show Policy and the Assumption of Risk / Waiver of Liability. * Please take note that by becoming a member of this meetup group you are agreeing to our Group Policies that are listed in the "Pages" section any additional guidelines set up for each event you attend.

I have been with SNOB FREE WINE™ since it began in 2010 and am thrilled to be the new Organizer for the group! My goal is to share my love of wine with others, learn a little along the way and have fun doing so! It’s all about personal taste and what makes you happy! Hope to see you at an event soon!
