Hey! I am writing this message in November 2018. A lot of meetups either have very limited space or are inactive, so I thought I would try to start my own.
The only prerequisite is that you like wine and want to take wine tasting at least somewhat seriously! 'Normal people' and people pursuing wine as a career are welcome to join!
I want the ratio to be about 1 bottle of wine to every 2-3 people. Depending on how many people show up, every week I will select some people to buy a bottle of wine and then everyone at the meetup will split the cost. If you are feeling generous and have your own bottles you want to bring, please feel free to do so! The wines will generally be between 20 and 50 dollars, but after we split the cost no one should ever be paying over 20 dollars, and I imagine it should be way less than that. Other wine tastings in New York can cost upwards of $70.
When we have events, please RSVP and Venmo the organizer $5 to secure your spot. This $5 will be deducted from the final splitting. This is just to ensure no one flakes and there is a good amount of bottles to people.
