What’s a Vin Social?
A Vin Social is a celebration of the undiscovered. A unique social gathering where people come together for a taste of an insiders-only world of small craft-wine, spirits, food, and culture. At the heart of every Vin Social is the story of a hands-on Artisan or Maker; people who have taken risks and built something real.Who’s invited?Why, everyone!With our knowledgeable experts guiding the experience, every Vin Social is tailored for its unique audience and delivered with excellence and finesse. Regardless of the occasion, you and your guests will enjoy shared moments of discovery that will deepen your relationships, foster bonds of respect and friendship, and plant the seed for a shared future filled with possibility.
And to that, we raise our glasses!
