Hi Wine Lover,
Get What You Want… And Then, Get More…
There are 500+ local pages on LocalWineEvents.com where you can find (or post) information about food, wine, beer and spirits events anywhere in the world. When you visit our website, you should be seeing the correct local page for your current location. If, for some reason, that doesn't happen, click the "Change Location" link.

Every local page on our site has its own edition of The Juice, our event notification e-mail. If you want your Juice subscription to cover more than one local area, here's what YOU have to do. It'll only take a minute: Log in and click the "My Juice Settings" link. Then, follow the instructions to add a city.

As you browse the site, you may find a local page that doesn't list many events. We need your help to turn that around. The food and drink event information you see on LocalWineEvents.com -- and here in The Juice -- is posted by restaurants, retailers, wineries and other event hosts in your area.

If there's a food/drink event -- dinner, tasting, class, festival, cooking demonstration, etc. -- that's not in our listings, it means the event host has not posted it... yet. Please mention LocalWineEvents.com to others... including your social media contacts... and alert us to any "missing" events. Thank you!

Check us out on:

Sincerely,

Rioja red wine production has become a massive logistical storage challenge.
