What we're about

This group has been created for people who enjoy learning about wine and culture at the same time. Each quarter of the year, we host events at an embassy in Washington DC to share and learn about the culture of the hosting country. You don't have to be a member to attend those embassy events. Come and join us for cultural adventures around drinks and food.
