Socialize and network with other fun members and friends in a relaxed atmosphere during one of our very popular walk around wine tasting events at Vinoversity’s Wine Shop Tasting Room. Unlike other stuffy wine tastings where you are stuck at one table, our walk around format gives you the opportunity to meet dozens of our members and other wine enthusiasts at the event. You will enjoy up to 24 different wines all carefully explained by Vinoversity’s friendly and knowledgeable sommeliers. The night also features light appetizers.
If you are new to wine or a die hard fan, this is a great experience for all!
How does it work? When you arrive you will be given a glass and a list of the wines available for tasting (usually up to 24!) There are usually 3-4 tables that each have several wines on them. At each table there is a wine expert there to tell you about each wine that you sample. You can go through each table in order or bounce around while meeting dozens of fun people. There will also be at least one table with a selection of delicious appetizers.
What should I wear? Most people come from work. So business casual is just fine.
Wines for this event: Taste 24-28 whites, reds, & dessert wines from wine regions around the Mediterranean Sea, from Greece, Israel, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Apulia, and eastern Spain! These wines will not disappoint, and will amaze you with their unique flavors, styles, and mineralities. A super tasting from an incredible wine region! Complimentary cheeses, dips, olives, & flatbreads will be served.
