  • This location is shown only to members

We do not drink a lot, but we always drink GOOD wine!

By sharing wine together. We will taste different wine and learn.

We know you have plenty of experience with wine from Rioja region. So let’s try the other two important regions of Spain, Priorat and Ribera Del Duero.

Each member will bring a bottle of wine from either of these 2 regions (Priorat or Ribera Del Duero) in Spain.  As soon as you decide which wine to bring. You will post the wine’s details here. Which wine region? Which wintage and winery or wine maker’s name? Other member who plans to come would have to bring different wine.

Bring a little appetizer and your wine glasses too.

For members attending their first event with us,

please go to the specialty wine shop instead of supermarket.

Please budget around $20 per person. We strongly encourage 2 people coming together to bring a bottle costing around $ 40.
