What we're about

This is a group designed for anyone interested in learning more about wine, or just enjoying the social aspect of wine tasting. Whether you've just discovered you actually like wine, or if you're a certified Sommelier, all are welcome and we cater to all levels of knowledge. Some activities I'd like to see happen for the group are road trips to various wineries, hosting food and wine pairings, visiting local wine bars for food and wine pairings, or just hosting an event where we can all casually mingle and sip wines. Just a note: A majority of events will most likely have some sort of cost involved, but it's my goal to make it worth every penny and help you grow in your knowledge, love, appreciation, and enjoyment of wine.

Although the Group name is "SoCal Wine Enthusiasts," a majority of the members are from the Chino area. We tend to have a majority of our events in the Inland Empire area, but will periodically venture out to other areas, as well.

POT LUCK: Let's help Shelli unload some of her wine surplus!

Location visible to members


Shelli has several bottles of wine that are at their prime drinking date, so she has graciously offered to let us assist her with the task of helping her drink all of them! This will be a great opportunity for us to all casually gather for an afternoon of wine, friends, and fun. Since Shelli is supplying the wine, let's all bring a little something to complement the varietals she's bringing. Wine list is still being determined, but will be posted in plenty of time to plan your contribution to the Pot Luck. To help Shelli with her wine costs, we're also requesting a $10 contribution (please bring cash to the event). And the not-so-fine print: Due to the limited space for this event and since participants will be bringing food for a certain number of people, you should not RSVP unless you are 100% certain of your attendance. NO-SHOWS WILL BE BANNED FROM THE GROUP!

Tapas Style Potluck at Mike & Delia's

The Williams Residence

Mike & Delia have been kind enough to open up their home to us for a nice evening of Tapas and Wine. Let's head out to West Covina for good times, great food, and amazing wines from their cellar. Let's watch the sunset while sipping on fantastic wines and enjoying some tasty bites. Sounds like a terrible evening, right (lol)? In lieu of a fee, we're doing this Pot Luck style ... so get your creativity caps on, and sharpen those chef skills (or just bring items for the charcuterie)! Please post the item(s) you plan on bringing when you RSVP, so we all can keep track of what everyone plans on bringing. Here is a list of suggested things we'll need (please bring enough for 15-20 people): Cheese: Manchego, Goat/Chevre, Iberico, Cabrales Meats: Chorizo, Iberico or Serrano Ham, Salchichon Other charcuterie items: Marcona almonds, Pistachios, Olives, Baguettes, Dried Fruits (apricots work nicely) or Figs, Crackers Here are some links to nice Tapas recipes: https://www.tasteofhome.com/collection/tapas-recipes-for-your-next-cocktail-party/ https://www.foodandwine.com/slideshows/tapas https://www.thespruceeats.com/last-minute-tapas-3083741 This should be one Summer Night for the ages ... see you there!
