At some (but not all) venues, we can bring our own wines. Are you willing to do so? We will ask you to briefly introduce yourself and tell why you like this wine. Those bringing wine don't share in corkage fees or group wine purchases.
Do you consider your self a wine novice, an intermediate, or wine expert?
Hello, I'm new to the area and hope to meet new people and experience all this new city has to offer.
We are wine enthusiasts in thecentral Ohio areawho may also be part of the Ohio Chapter of theInternational Bacchus Society. We are not limited solely to the Dublin area, and our group hosts events all over central Ohio.
Founded in November 2006, we have now have over 580 members, and have had over 100 meetings with an average rating of 4.85 out of 5. Join us to meet fellow Wine Enthusiasts near you! We have an even mix of married couples and singles.
Anyone who loves wine is welcome to join our group. No invitation needed.
Come to one of our local Wine Meetups to taste new wines; learn about attributes of wine; and discuss different vintages and estates. Everyone is welcome, from wine novices to educated connoisseurs (we have an even balance). We have a master sommelier in our group.
This meetup is also for individuals who would like to learn more about or join the Ohio Bacchus Society. The Bacchus Society is a philanthropic organization dedicated to promoting the enjoyment and understanding of wines, gourmet food, travel and entertainment. Our events, which are held throughout Central Ohio, are fun and accessible. There is no cost to join the Bacchus Society. More details are here: http://www.bacchussociety.com/
Dues: We have a $1 per person charge for attendees at our wine meetups to cover the Meetup administrative fees of approximately $150 per year.
All proceeds collected above the $150 will go to our selected charities. Currently (and subject to change) they are: 1. The Arthritis Foundation of Central Ohio 2. The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.
When your dollar is collected, you can designate which charity the proceeds will be directed to and I'll assure it will be done. If you don't designate, we will divide the donations between the two charities. As a member, you can suggest new charities for our group.
Thanks for your your participation in our group. Over the last 7 years we have contributed over $12,000 to our selected charities. We are doing more than just gathering on a monthly basis and having fun and making new friends. We are making a difference in the lives of many folks served by our selected charities.
