We love sharing and teaching about wine! Join us at a future event.

CruVentures conducts unique wine learning experiences for wine lovers in the Silicon Valley who are knowledgeable about wine or are eager to learn about wine in depth.

We host a small number of wine learning and experience groups in the Silicon Valley. These small groups hold scheduled events four times a year locally and conduct one trip a year to one of the leading wine regions of the world.

Our locally held events each explore one major aspect about wine, focused by either varietal or region. We cover viticulture, viniculture, wine sensory analysis, food and wine pairing. Just as importantly, we share tastings of outstanding examples of wines which faithfully represent both varietal and terrior.

Our annual wine trip experience is conducted into a top wine making region and includes visiting top wineries in the area and opportunities to taste their wines and meet their winemakers to learn first hand about their approach to wine making that has made them successful.

We believe that learning about wine in depth greatly increases enjoyment of wine. It is also tremendously intellectually stimulating and encompasses such a broad set of topics that it is something you can spend a lifetime learning about and never get bored. Along the way you meet the most interesting people and can travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world.

We welcome you to join us in our growth experiences! To learn more please contact us.
