What we're about

Welcome to Wine Lovers of NYC! We are a fun group of people ready to have a great time as we enjoy wine. Come and sample a variety of wines.

Wine Lovers of NYC was started as a club of New York City wine lovers on Meetup.com in 2014. We took over the group in early 2015 and have grown the group to more than 5000 members. We hold regular tastings at Pierre Loti Wine Bars (http://pierrelotiwinebar.com/) and other venues throughout New York City and we are planning to expand events into Brooklyn and Queens. Our tastings are both intimate tastings of fine wines guided by some of the leading wine experts in the world and larger walkaround tastings where attendees can sample many wines in a party atmosphere. We also help promote charity wine tastings and occasionally larger events held by partner organizations.
