"Great Times occur around Good Food, Wine and Fun conversations."
We are a very active Social Community dedicated to Wine, Food and the Arts, in the Washington DC metro area. Our events are held in diverse, convenient locations in the DMV area, that allow our members to learn and enjoy their favorite Grape or Grain beverage in a casual atmosphere while making new friends.
Our events are planned to create a fun social atmosphere with a learning experience, where the objective is to enjoy different cultures, and cuisines with our favorite Grape or Grain beverage.
As many of our members are Artists, Creative individuals and Professionals that love supporting local Artists and Art communities, some of our events tend to involve local Artists or local Art communities.
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 2016, we have planned wine, beer and whiskey tastings, wine-paired dinners, trips to local wineries, breweries and distilleries, besides events with local Artists and Art communities in the DC metro area.
Though the primary objective of our group is to socialize and have a good time around Food, Wine and the Arts, 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 drink and food pairings to supporting our local DC Art communities and Artists (Jazz, Opera, Local Theater, Art Galleries etc.)
We will also expand on our successful 2015 launch of "Dinner with an Artist" event series, where we aspire to connect different Professionals in our group with local Art and Dance communities to create an evening of new ideas, artistic and cultural experiences while also supporting the work of our local DC Artists.
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.
