You can just plug in your area and it will give you a listing of local events. Remember though, that most of the bigger free of charge events are for "professionals" and they don't just let folks in off the street, no matter how wine interested they might be. Wine purveyors only pour their stuff for potential BUYERS like retail shop owners, restaurant Beverage Managers, Bar owners, etc. The end consumer isn't really who they're after - they want VOLUME purchasers. I say stick with your friends if they're in the wine biz, and tag along whenever possible. Otherwise, find wine shops that always have a few bottles open to taste with the customers, and make sure you get onto their mailing lists in particular.
