We are wine enthusiasts in thecentral Ohio areawho are 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 500 members, and have had over 60 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's welcome, from wine novices to educated connoisseurs (we have an even balance). We have a master sommelier in our group.
This meeting 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.
(For the last 6 years I have been covering these out of my own pocket)
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 6 years we have contributed over $10,000.00 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.
