About UncorkedDenver.comThis is a WINE SOCIAL and wine education event for young to mid professionals (20's to 40's give a year or two).   Our group was modeled after the Wine Brats® , a wine social mixer for young professionals to learn about wine with their peers in many US cities which shut down a few years ago. Our purpose is to provide a wine and food pairing with a social mixer for the young to mid professionals demographic to mingle with their peers while they learn about new wines.     Our group is open to singles, couples, married.  Although our group is not a singles group, there is a high percentage of singles and we have 20-30% coupled or married attending every month.  We split our tickets so we have a balance.  Our members are expecting an experience of drinking wine and socializing with peers in their demographic when they attend an event.  

This group is NOT a "business networking" group Although there are a lot of business networking groups in Denver, our monthly wine tasting event is NOT a business networking event.   Our members attend to "relax" and enjoy a glass of wine and make new friends. Our members are NOT interested in being "pitched" your skin care, real estate, jewelry, financial advising, and other items.    They are turned off by folks coming around to them with business cards looking to sell them anything.  I do understand folks ask what you do for a living as a conversation item.  If your main purpose in attending is to drum up business, please find a business networking group.  

Please come to enjoy the wine, meet the winemaker and make new friends.   If you are hit up by an attendee going around the room "pitching" please report it to me.   I appreciate everyone's understanding and it's not my intention to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings.
