Vinolovers Soft Launch Wine Tasting Party
Wednesday, October 17, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Discover Your Wine Personality - Celebrate DC Wine Week - Support the DC Start-Up Community
Vinolovers is a DC based start-up that is modernizing the wine subscription club by creating a buying experience that is personalized to your tastes.
For this exclusive kick-off event we'll be pouring eight unique, palate pleasing wines selected to represent various wine personalities. Buttery beauties will fall for the toasty chardonnay, while the knockout 100% grenache will be a favorite for power punchers.
Wines will be available for purchase for those that find a wine that matches their wine personality, and tasting party attendees will also receive an exclusive Vinolovers subscription discount offer for our full launch this fall.
Tickets are $30 and include wine tastings and chef prepared food pairing. A DJ will provide musical entertainment, and a raffle will be held for a copy of The Wine Bible and other wine party favors.
