Honoring Allan Wright Wine Meetup!
Pat and Dom are hosting a bittersweet wine meetup on Thursday, June 21st starting at 6 pm! The event will take place in Pat’s backyard: 429 Maxwell Avenue in Boulder. As many of us know, Allan founded and owned the Boulder Wine Meetup for several years. The group has been responsible for holding a large number of highly enjoyable wine gatherings featuring impressive wines and appetizers. None of this would have happened had Allan not founded the Boulder Wine Meetup and periodically provided wise guidance for the Meetup. Sadly, life circumstances means that Allan must move from Boulder, and he will therefore need to end his leadership of the meetup. Let’s send Allan off in style by holding an outstanding Boulder Wine Meetup event! Please bring a delicious Italian wine (the Italians specialize in delicious wines). Your wine should score at least 88 points by a wine-rating organization. Also bring an Italian appetizer (preferably homemade). Please remember a few things: 1. If you RSVP that you will attend, please attend. It is unfair to those on the waiting list to decide less than a day away from the event that you will not attend. If you must cancel, please do so at least a day in advance. 2. Limit is 60 attendees. 3. Each attendee is welcome to bring up to one guest. If you bring a guest, please list that person as a “Plus 1” on your RSVP. Also, please bring two bottles of wine and two appetizers, or a larger than normal appetizer (since there are TWO of you). 4. Bring your own wine glass.

What we're about

Boulder Wine Meetup is a group of Boulder County wine enthusiasts who meet to taste and drink wine. No experience is necessary and we are all about having fun.

We have four different types of events:

Wine Education: These events involve learning about a specific aspect of wine. They are generally smaller (8-20 people) and usually include someone knowledgeable about the subject. No experience is necessary.

Wine Tastings: These events are the middle ground, usually 15-30 people and designed with tasting in mind. We'll usually discuss the wines and sometimes have score cards to rate them.

Wine Socials: These are larger events, with 20-60 people, and are as much about the socialization as the wine.

Wine Tours: Boulder Wine Meetup's main organizer Allan Wright happens to run two tour companies, Zephyr Adventures (http://www.zephyradventures.com) and Taste Vacations (http://www.TasteVacations.com), both of which offer wine (and food and beer) tours. Occasionally we'll add one of these tours to the Meetup group and see if we can get a Boulder County contingent to go.

If you have never been to a Boulder Wine Meetup event, don't be shy. Everyone is welcome, everyone makes friends, and you need have no experience or expertise.

If you sign up for a wine tasting, please show up! No-shows and late cancellations make it hard for organizers. We do ask organizers to mark No Shows on this website and will take action if necessary. At most of our events, attendees are asked to bring a bottle of wine and an appetizer to share. Remember you should bring a bottle of which you are proud - not just the cheapest bottle on the shelf. Please don't take home wine - opened or unopened - without the host's permission!

If you would like to host an event, please see this page about hosting (https://www.meetup.com/boulderwine/pages/23862153/How_To_Host_a_Boulder_Wine_Meetup).

Please note this group is composed of and run by volunteers. No one pre-screens hosts or checks to make sure hosts are doing things properly. No one pre-screens group members who might attend parties. No one checks to make sure you don't drink too much when you attend a tasting. You take full responsibility for yourself if you participate in this group.

The group is great fun and an excellent way to meet fellow wine fans!
