WWS Educational Events 

Across the country, WWS hosts many exciting events each month. Here are some of the upcoming events for each of our chapters. To register for any of these events, go to the WWS Events Calendar.

Pittsburgh: Cork & Canvas Painting Party

Monday, July 18, 2016 - 6PM Until 9PM

Don't miss our Cork & Canvas painting party to celebrate our 5th Anniversary! No art experience needed! A little paint, a little wine, and a whole lot of fun! Knowing how much you like wine but don't have endless cash to spare, we'll also be introducing some of our budget friendly favorites for under $12. You don't want to miss this!

Finger Lakes: Wine & Literature

Monday, July 18, 2016 - 6:30PM Until 8:30 PM

Have you amassed a collection of books that you’ve loved, but now are ready to send along to someone else that will love reading them just as much? Our July meeting will be the first of what we hope to be an annual book exchange for the Women for WineSense Finger Lakes Chapter!  Bring a book or two to swap- we’ll have a short discussion at the beginning of the meeting lead by board member, Kyle Pallischeck, about the impact wine books have had on her career in wine, and then we’ll take the last hour to socialize, enjoy the wines and delicious food prepared by Halsey’s Restaurant, and swap wine books!

Seattle: Wine With Soiuthern BBQ at 8 Bells Winery
Monday, July 25, 2016 6:30PM Until 8:30PM

No beer kegs or Margaritas at this BBQ! We will have some summer fun choosing which 8 Bells wines go best with a feast of Southern BBQ. After sipping a chilled and welcoming, warm weather-friendly 8 Bells Pinot Gris, we will begin our experiment. In front of us will be 4 wines to sample with our Arkansas-style barbecue. Not knowing what those wines are should lead to some great pairings that may be quite a surprise!

Please see event calendar for more details.

Dallas: Getting To Know Wine Apps
Tuesday, July 26, 2016 6PM Until 8PM

How is technology helping wine drinkers discover the wines they really want?

 With so many wine apps out there, it can be hard to choose the right one for you, let alone which wine to drink tonight!

Amy Gross, Founder and CEO of the personal preference data company VineSleuth, will lead a conversation about what wine apps are out there to help guide wine drinkers, as well as talk about ways retailers are getting into the game to help shoppers in store, digitally.

 Amy has been working in wine flavor data since 2010. In 2009, she was a frustrated consumer, tired of gambling at the grocery store or restaurant when a sommelier was not around to help. After thinking about the idea for a while, she got to work recruiting and directing sensory scientists, wine makers and an applied mathematician to create a new way to objectively characterize wine and build out a personal preference learning algorithm.

Please see event calendar for more details.

Finger Lakes: Say Hello to Hybirds!
Monday, August 15, 2016 - 6:30PM Until 8:30PM

Hybrid grapes have long been part of NYS (and the East Coast) wine-making history but until recently they have had little exposure on the “world-wide wine stage”.  That fact is changing as these traditionally overlooked varietals are garnering attention and positive reviews from wine writers like Eric Asimov and Stuart Piggot. Join us as we explore this distinctive category of grapes - what they are, their significance in wine history for the region and the world, and the renewed recognition of the emerging importance of these grapes to the future of wines. We will taste several wines made from a variety of hybrid grapes, as we consider the diversity of wine in today’s world!!
