New Members, Meet the Event Organizers - RSVP REQUIRED @ The Wine Room

  • This location is shown only to members

On the last Sunday of each month we have an event focused on welcoming our new members to the group. So please don't hesitate, join us at an event where you can be assured that you will be comfortable and not be the only new member there... We wear name tags to help us remember each others names. This event focused on welcoming our New Members. A few of our friendly hosts will be there as well. This event will give you an opportunity to meet the organizers, hosts and other new members of the Wine Lovers group. Feel free to ask me questions about the group and events. Please look out for me [David - my pictures are clear and on my profile and on the left column (Organizers) of this web page]. Please introduce yourself to me on arrival. . I will have my iPad open displaying a Wine Lovers picture slide show, so you will have a further indicator to ID our group.

There is a great selection of wines, by the bottle... From about $10 a bottle... (Free corkage on Sundays :) find a member who enjoys the same kind of wine as yourself and share a bottle or just use your Wine Room card to go around tasting some of the many wines on the machines. They sell delicious flat breads and artisan cheese plates. Being a Sunday we arrive at 6pm and the event will run until about 8pm... As we realize some need to work on Monday. So this will not be a late night but a great way to wind down the weekend... I look forward to meeting you... David

    Les,
    The group has been around for over 6 years and David puts a lot of effort into it. I am sorry you had a bad first experience but that wasn't Davids fault and probably not the wine rooms. Just a busy Labor Day weekend. Therefore, your negative and limited experience with the resulting bad review will prevent me from coming to your event EVER!!!

    Hi, my name is Helen. Sorry I missed the new members event yesterday, but sort of glad I avoided what's being described as chaotic...as a new member and being new to FL, chaos is not a comfortable scene for me....hope that is not the norm...I recently moved to FL from Philadelphia...was just getting into learning about wines (I am such a super novice right now) prior to me coming here...looking for a venue to learn more about wines and also connect with some folks...living in Polk Cty - Dundee is quite a lonely existence....will look forward to the next new member event...question? Is this a meet up where one could learn?

    Les, your event on 9/18 seems interesting. Would like to take you up on your invite for all.

    thanks,

      Hi Helen... Sorry you never made it... It's Labor Day Weekend, so the Wine Room was unusually busy... We frequent the Wine Room at least one a week and this was the busiest... We usually have between 10 and 20 members in a far less clouded Wine Room... And yes I do normally have signage and my IPad open with a display but last night was so busy we tried sitting outside but then were told that we were obstructing the sidewalk and ATM so we moved back inside and finally began to occupy the table in front of the bar... We had a great time... As for wine education... We share our knowledge and experience in a casual manor... No strict structured classes... (We have a few of those tastings a year, where the tastings are seated with very limited numbers in attendance and cost between $35 and $65... But really worth the money...

    I enjoyed my first event. A little chaotic initially since it was very crowded. But I found David easily when I arrived at 6pm, I recognized him from his photo. He was standing right in front talking to 2 other members. Everyone was very nice and friendly. Great wine, food and conversations with all. I will be attending more. Thank you David!!

    Meet up group was scattered since there was no area for such a large group available since the place w as busy. Had some nice conversations and got many pointers on wine and food places to try. And of course met very nice people
