What we're about
Our founder decided to start this group because she enjoyed wine and want to get to know other people in their 20s & 30s that like wine too. It worked! Since getting started in April 2010, we've had over 1,020 tastings, wineries, dinners, festivals, happy hours, parties, and other great events with more planned in the future!
We welcome men and women in their 20s & 30s that want to meet new people and enjoy good wine (and occasionally beer or cocktails too). Our members range through all levels of experience with wine, so don't be scared if you are new to wine or consider yourself an expert!
We look forward to meeting you at our next event, so join us!
Our Wine Lovers Events:
We are the most active wine group on the East Coast! Events are held throughout the DC, Virginia and Maryland areas, even as far as Delaware, PA and West Virginia! Although we have over 3500 members in the group, the size of our events remain perfect for socializing and meeting new people. Our events include winery outings, happy hours, dinners, brunches, concerts, ski trips, beach weekend, and just about anything our great team of organizers can dream up! If we have wine, we have an event!
Our Non-Negotiable Requirements for Joining:
While we are open to everyone joining, we are still a private group. 3 Steps to join:
1) Use your real name (first name ok),
2) Fully answer all questions (just putting a period doesn't count) and You must be 21 years old & over to join;
3) Have a real photograph of yourself that shows your face as your profile picture. (Event organizers need to be able to recognize you, as do your fellow wine lovers.) That means no puppies (no matter how cute), flowers, vistas toys, anime characters, etc. If it's a group photo, it has to be REALLY obvious which one is you. Just let your own awesome self shine through in your photo!
If you ignore these requirements simply to join the group, you'll be declined.
Love All, Respect All and Have Fun!
