We at Grapes & Grains believe in learning and tasting wine, beer and whiskey in an unpretentious and fun atmosphere. We're open to anyone interested in tasting whether they are a novice or a connoisseur (newbies, enthusiasts, wine snobs, and cork dorks welcome).
"Great Times occur around Good Food, Wine and Fun conversations."
Our objective is simple: organize affordable, fun tastings and food pairing events in diverse, convenient locations in the Washington DC Metro area to allow our members to learn and enjoy quality wine, beer and whiskey in a casual atmosphere. We seek to combine quality tasting experience with a fun social atmosphere.
As with this old Italian expression, “A tavola non si invecchia” which mean at the table with good friends you do not become old.
Our events are typically limited to smaller group sizes, where the objective is to socialize around Food and Drinks, converse and enjoy the diverse company of others, which normally does not happen in larger group events.
"Life is too short and Time is too precious to waste on Bad Food, Wine or Company."
For 2014, we have planned wine, beer and whiskey tastings, wine-paired dinners, winery trips and many more fun events.
Though the primary objective of our group is to socialize and have a good time around Food, Wine and Arts related activities, we also would like to have a small meaningful impact on our local communities.
Therefore based on various suggestions, and the fact that most of our diverse members are lovers of the Arts, to venture a little beyond wine and food pairings to supporting our local DC Arts and Artists (Jazz, Opera, Local Theater, Art Galleries, Dc Nerd nights, etc.)
Our focus is on both learning about Grapes and Grains and having fun. Our motto is simply "find your grape or grain !" So join our group, attend one of our events, and be part of the adventure.
In the pursuit of finding your Grape or Grain, Discover new tastes, Make new friends and Enjoy some of the diverse culinary aspects of our city.
