We formed this non profit club to create opportunities for Bay Area residents, couples as well as singles, to learn more about the Wondrous World of Wine without adding to the intimidation factor. We will explore and exchange views on a wide variety of domestic and occasionally imported wines from smaller, artisan producers, with a special emphasis on meeting the new kids on the block.
We will hold tastings, take trips to wineries, offer discounts to sponsored wine events as well as the wines being poured, and invite vintners to lead us through their current releases. We encourage suggestions for programs.
We rely on the Meetup.com platform to promote our events.
From time to time, we also convene informal tasting panels to evaluate California wines, placing our findings on CellerTracker.com and our blog .
We are also in the process of creating a buyers cooperative, wine.coop, to enable members to purchase wine at up to 40% off of suggested retail. Stay tuned.
