New Meetup: Great Wines in 2010

Announcing a new Meetup for United Social Sports - DC Area!

What: Great Wines in 2010

When: Friday, June 18,[masked]:00 PM

Washington Wine Academy
2 Blocks from Courthouse Metro Actual location given when registration is completed
Arlington, VA 22201

Join the Washington Wine Academy for the 16th version of our Great Wines series, "Great Wines around $15" in a metro convenient location in the Courthouse area of Arlington, on Friday, June 18th from 7-11 pm. Register on our website and bring a bottle of vino to share - we'll have the glasses, food & fun ready to go.

When you arrive our volunteers will take your bottle and give you a glass for the evening (don't keep it - we'll need 'em for future Great Wines events). We'll have various tasting stations set up throughout the room and our volunteer sommeliers will change out the selections available at each station throughout the evening so attendees will have a constantly shifting variety to choose from. We'll serve a buffet of light snacks/appetizers to go with the wine offerings, and your admission includes entry into the hourly door prize drawings to win wine themed items, wine accessories, and event tickets.

We are charging $14.50 per person to cover food, cleaning, glassware, ABC license, space rental and party supplies. We will NOT ACCEPT payments at the door, so please register online before noon Friday, June 18 to ensure your name is on the door list. Please note our no refund policy.

Entry into the event requires pre-registration and 1 bottle of wine PER PERSON. You may bring more if you so desire, but one bottle per person (not couple, group, etc....) is the minimum. To guarantee quality sampling for all guests, please ensure the value of your bottle meets the minimum value of $10 (no Charles Shaw!), and to ensure variety for this particular event we'd like to challenge you to bring a bottle from a location or a varietal you have not sampled before. Never been out West? Then Pinot from Oregon or Chard from CA is cool. Never had Alvarinho? Seek it out! Got a bottle sitting in your rack from last year's winery tour? Leave it home...stuff you've already had doesn't cut it.
To ensure a broad spectrum, we suggest if your last name begins with the letters A-M bring a Red, N-Z bring a White. Confused? Bring a Rose. The event is limited to ONLY those on the guest list, with valid ID.

We look forward to seeing you there as we continue our 9th year of Great Wines events.

Purchase Tickets Here: $14.50
