MEL Wine Tastings return for another season! After being reinvented last season following the COVID shutdown hiatus, five sold-out wine tastings, with rave reviews, helped the MEL community reunite. This season, we continue to acknowledge the privilege it is to be together. Hosted in some of the city's finest private homes, join friends old and new, and experience an evening of Merida Wine Tasting magic.

Each month's themed tasting features four sommelier-selected wines paired with hors d'oeuvres prepared by a local chef. 

You can watch our promo video on YouTube.

The dates for this season are October 20 • November 17 • December 15 • January 19 • February 16 • March 23.

Tickets become available sixteen days before each event (on the Tuesday two weeks before the Thursday wine tasting) at the Library and on-line.

Prices for the 2022 - 2023 season are $600/person for MEL members and $700/person for non-members.

MEL Wine Tastings start at 7:00 PM and finish by 9:00 PM.  Each location is a surprise, revealed when the tickets are purchased. Rest assured, we have some spectacular homes in the pipeline!

The Wine Tastings will adhere to whatever COVID protocols are in place at the time. As of this moment, proof of COVID Vaccination is not required to attend.

To life, to love, to Merida... Salud!
