As Our Data Shows, Wine Makes the World Go 'Round

We like wine, and we're not alone. Folks in the "Brite" orange nations have used Eventbrite to plan wine events.

A couple of weeks back, Tighe, Eventbrite Blog Editor and Community Manager, made a few statements with which I personally identify: “I like wine, and I like events. Naturally, I like wine events.

We talk a lot about wine–in fact, 45 entries in this blog mention the drink. Consequently, one may wonder, is the Eventbrite team a band of winos?

I took it upon myself to build a defense. Since June 2010, a total of 16,231 events mentioning “wine”, “vino”, or “vin” have been made available on Eventbrite to happy folk across the world. This includes people in the following 47 locales (with events yet-to-come including links):

Events are one of the most basic and ubiquitous aspects of human life – still, it amazes me that people in so many countries have a need for event management tools.

At Eventbrite, we'll give you the "family pour." If you don't know what that is, you're probably still nursing a half-empty glass.

Even more amazing is that they found use in the Eventbrite platform, when we’ve only begun customizing our tools to fit the needs of different customs and preferences. Kristina, our International Product Manager and fellow wine-lover, joined the team in February and will be leading the charge here.

I think now we can agree that wine, too, so entwined in ritual, tradition, and modern day debauchery, is a moving force appreciated by people in all parts of the world. So, winos or not, after our company-wide meeting this month, aka “Wine Brite Night”, we’ll be raising a glass for you, the people who bring us good wine and awesome events, and keep us human!
