What we're about

Hello fellow wine lovers! I am excited to start leading this already large group deeper into the world of wine and friendship! Timing has been challenging but I'm ready to go! I have spent the last three months exploring & talking to business owners so I am excited to share the events I have discussed with them.

We are a very large group already & I would love to gauge the interests of our members. I will be changing the new member questions in the next day or so to gather data on various topics like general location of members, wine preferences, event ideas, desired frequency of meet ups, etc. As existing members if you could attempt to answer the new questions or message me your answers that would be great!

We are a very large meetup so If anyone is interested in helping me manage events please let me know. I would love help with planning & ideas for new events

My vision for the meet up would be to offer once monthly activities that could include:

• Wine Tastings in public venues focused on learning about wines

• Wine pairing dinners at local restaurants

• Private hosted wine tastings that could include small pour parties where we splurge on higher priced bottles as a group to get a sampling of fine wines

• Attending local wine events

As members get to know each other there will also be opportunities for many other types of meet ups.

After managing the group now for a few months I have decided to assess an annual fee of $12. After covering the Meetup Fees I promise I will spend every dime on items to raffle at events!

LADIES ONLY EVENT - Bring your corks!!!
Let’s get crafty and drink some wine! I will be hosting this small event at my home. Address will be sent to all reserving a spot. Location is near Bee Ridge and Tamiami. I have a few different ideas for ornaments made out of wine corks and we can decide as a group as the event gets closer. If you find a design you like please message me. It will be $15 at the door to cover materials and any extra I will spend on wine! Bring a glue gun and sticks if you have one. Asking members to bring small appetizer plates as well. I will have some cheese and crackers to pair with the wine.
