Women’s Wine Society is all about facilitating friendships while learning about wine. Our events focus on wine regions, wine style, vertical tastings, food & wine pairings. We feature guest speakers from the wine industry. We encourage exploration of the local Richmond restaurant scene & hold events at area hot spots.

Membership Registration


Members enjoy fine dining for less. Area restaurants open their doors to us on Mondays, usually a night they are closed. Event fees cover food, wine, tax & gratuity.

Yearly we make a vineyard jaunt to Virginia wine country, visiting a vineyard. They host us for lunch & wine education, as well as a vineyard tour. Wine education abounds.

Members bring friends and family members to our monthly events, explore a mutual passion for food and wine, and enjoy time together with special people in their life.

Take the time to indulge your passions for wine, food & friendship. We invite you to join us! You’ll fit right in!

Annual Membership Dues are $60. Benefits include discounts to all monthly events.
