What if science showed that a series of questions asked between two strangers gets them close to each other? What if couples could be formed or strengthened as a result of these questions? Are you curious to see what happens? Would you like to sip some LOVEly wine in the process?

Then this one-of-a-kind science experiment Valentine’s Day wine tasting is for you.

Based on this most intriguing story – To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This – wine (and science) journalist + sommelier Gloria Chang is leading a wine tasting that may have you falling in love with a person, in addition to the wines that will be poured. How did this come about? -> To Fall in Love, Come to this Wine Tasting.

Each single participant will be asked to fill out a questionnaire beforehand to increase the chances of a successful match. You will mingle and sip wine. You will go through a fun process of asking the person with whom you’ve been matched a series of questions – learning about yourself and helping science along the way. Mingle some more to end the eve with the remainder of the wine tasting. And answer a few questions on the experience. Six months later, there’ll be a followup to see if any successful matches have been made.

To ensure proper numbers for pairing, we are releasing tickets to this Valentine’s Day wine tasting in two stages. If it appears there are no remaining tickets (between stages of ticket sales) please email to express your interest in attending.
