About our events: Denver Wine Meetup/ events are a unique opportunity to socialize with other young/mid professionals and make new friends over at a wine and food pairing, with select wines paired with appetizers, sometimes with the winemaker visiting.

Our events differ from the many “happy hours” in a bar groups around Denver and high priced wine organizations, distributor/festival type events as the events are a wine social with the opportunity to meet a winemaker or wine manager and focus on learning about a winery and/or a varietal. Our events provide members a unique wine and culinary pairing event with the aspect of a social mixer at an affordable price. Although our events are not “singles” events, we try to keep an even split of males, females  and couples at our events.

Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker.   This event will be limited to 100 attendees due to space

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
