Social Events

Part of the magic of GUADEC is going out to amazing dinners with your new and old friends; exploring the beautiful parts of somewhere new; and maybe even staying up to watch the sunrise.

This year is a little bit different – but there are still lots of ways to get to know each other, try out new things, and hopefully have a little fun.

All social events will take place in Track 1. Check your registration and attendee update emails for the link and access code.

Wine Tasting

Please join us on the 21st of July at 22: 00 UTC for a wine tasting hosted by Danielle G. of Scout and Cellar. 

Danielle will be walking us through a tasting of 3 wines – a California Chardonnay, a Chilean Pinot Noir, and a Washington, Cabernet Sauvignon. 

She’ll be sharing a little about the wine-making process and what to look for in these types of wines.

For those over 21 and based in the United States, the three wines we will be tasting (2020 Gallivant Chardonnay, California; 2020 Veinte Pinot Noir, Chile; 2019 The Resident Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington) can be ordered: https://scoutandcellar.com/eventshare/P165310/?u=danivino

(Unfortunately, these wines can only be shipped within the United States.) For everyone that orders, their name will be entered into a contest to win a prize!

For those outside of the US, a similar mass-produced product would be:

  • Rombauer Chardonnay, California
  • Casillero del Diablo Pinot Noir, Chile
  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington

Or a California Chardonnay, a Chilean Pinot Noir, and a Washington, Cabernet Sauvignon will also be a good sample.

For those outside of the US, we’ll have another drawing so everyone can win a prize!

Please order your wine by one week before to make sure you receive it on time
