Tupper-Wine Party?

Sorry for the unusual name of the post but I was reading an article on the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram web page and this is the best I could come up with.
The gist of the story is that people are having tupper ware style Wine Tasting parties in their house. The scope of these events is getting a Wine Educator to come to your house and teach you and others that you may invite about wine. These classes can be as simple as a 'Wine 101' to one that revolves around Spanish Red's. Since most of the Wine educators either work for or have an affiliation with a wine retailer, after the party, the attendees may purchase some of the wines they tasted to be picked up at the aforementioned wine retailer. Its a pretty interesting concept especially for those that can be intimidated by a more formal setting. These events allow people to be in a comfortable setting and decrease the likelihood of pretentiousness that occur in some other style classes. Its a good idea that will open up new avenues of wine education and create new wine lovers.
