WINE EXCHANGES provide a casual, fun atmosphere to engage with the world of wines over great food with friends old and new.  They are a fun, creative way to meet new people, try new restaurants and go home with a surprise wine.

The Pittsburgh TasteBuds have hosted wine exchanges since 2009 and gained a following in the Pittsburgh region by holding events throughout the year at select BYOB restaurants. expands the borders of the wine exchange events beyond Pittsburgh into other host cities.

General Guidelines:

  • Bring 1 bottle of wine in a wine bag or wrapped to be exchanged, approximate value ($15-20 bottle)
  • If a dinner event, bring 1 bottle of wine to have with your meal.
  • Follow the “theme” of the night. Each party has a theme – maybe a wardrobe color or accessory.
  • Participate and you may get a special group giveaway.
  • Please drink responsibly.
