Women & Wine on Wednesdays
was created by Linda Brewster Meffert in early 2005 in New Orleans, Louisiana, as a way for women to improve lifestyle balance by re-connecting with friends, making new acquaintances, and being open to develop new ideas and relationships.
Christy Hackenberg and Gaby Tillero created the branding for the concept, after mutual friend, Sandra Lombana introduced them to Linda Meffert. The four women founded the New Orleans location in 2005.
Over the years, many women in many cities have come to enjoy this same opportunity made available by the expansion of Women & Wine on Wednesdays
into cities around the country.

If you would like special ways to reach out to the women at an upcoming Women & Wine on Wednesday event, please let us know and we'll be happy to provide more specifics.
Come experience a unique facilitated icebreaker which provides a fun, efficient way to meet other women by enabling attendees to acquire many direct introductions in a short amount of time using a specially designed program called Women Bingo. It's an easy concept: upon arrival at the event, attendees are offered an envelope. The envelope front has 16 questions a la bingo style, but instead of boxes with numbers, there are boxes with different questions and a place for names on each box. (Example: what is your dream vacation?, your favorite late-night spot?, etc.) Attendees ask each other these questions, then jot the answers and names down in each of the boxes. The first one to complete the Women Bingo card with 16 names shouts "BINGO!" and is awarded with a complimentary bottle of the featured wine, but all the Women Bingo players are winners as they get to take home the perfect tool to building their own personal "good ol' girls network", an excellent source of contacts for whenever a specific need arises, for example for a real estate agent, party planner, stockbroker, tennis pro, etc.
Come Join the Fun!
