What we're about

This group is for all wine lovers in the KC area! Whether you like cabernet or chardonnay, I would like to set up local meetups where we can wine, dine and socialize! I would like to set up dining events at local restaurants, wine tastings, wine classes where we can learn about food and wine pairings, or just socialize and drink/talk about wine! Serious wine lovers only!
