Denver's Largest Wine Group with around 2000 meetup members! We also market events on Facebook and with other meetups so our reach is around 20,000...you'll meet new people as you try wines at our events.
UncorkedDenver.com/Denver Wine Meetup hosts a monthly "wine and food pairing social" at an "upscale" venue or restaurant. Our crowd is there to make new friends with their peers in addition to learn about wine. Our goal is to do something a step or two above the very average "grab a drink in a bar" type groups without the snobbery of high end wine organizations.
Our events pair wines with great appetizers at an upscale restaurant in Metro Denver. Our events have a presentation by a wine manager or the winemaker.
The crowd is mostly "young/mid professionals" (folks that don't classify as "young adult" or "senior" so generally late 20's through 50's although everyone is welcome. The events focus on a handful of wines by region, varietals, winery or theme paired with food. Sometimes we have a little education by a sommelier to explain the wines and region but we keep 90% of the event to drinking wine and socializing.
We have the fun party atmosphere of friendly young/mid professionals at a mixer type event, meeting and socializing over wine at a more upscale event. Everyone is welcome to attend, single, coupled, etc. Many of our events sell out in advance and have 75-100 or more in attendance depending on the type of event).
