Our weekends? They're booked.

Who We Are

The Wine Drinking Team book club is your average friendly neighborhood book club. We read. We talk. We drink wine.

How We Roll

Each month, one of our book club members picks a cool book they want to read (we keep a list of who’s turn it is—it’s very official) and we all (ok MOST of us) read the book! Then, we get together, spill some tea, talk about the book, and have a genuinely great time.

Sounds pretty cool, eh?

about our club

Origin Story

The Wine Drinking Team book club started with three women who wanted an excuse to read more books, and drink more wine.


Our group has grown and keeps expanding. We want to share our book picks with everyone out there who also wants to read more. And drink wine. Not necessarily in that order.


So click on the link to our latest pick, order the book, grab a team t-shirt, pour a glass of wine, and get started.
