Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn, discover and have fun. Our Savvy Events afford exactly those kinds of creative social experiences, drawing on the expertise and imagination of our team of Savvy Sommeliers.

Relaxed and welcoming, Savvy Events aren’t about theory or textbooks. They’re about getting to know the people who produce the food and drink we enjoy—to make connections and forge friendships. All you need is an open mind, an eager palate and a spirit of exploration.

We invite you to join us!
