This could be a really fun thing to start with a group of friends who want to learn about wine or just plain like it. You could pick a chapter from a wine book to read and then meet to talk about it. Coordinate to bring different wines discussed in the text and then try them together.
Here are the books that won't put you to sleep and teach you a great deal about wine:
The Wine Bible by Karen MacNeil
Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine by Mark Oldman
