At Swirl Events, we believe the busier life gets, the more we need to connect to the people with whom we work and play. We also believe wine should never be intimidating or pretentious, but instead always fun and social. Getting together with friends and colleagues over wine is a soul-satisfying experience, and one filled with laughter and discovery. Our goal is to make your event an extraordinary one.
Founder & CEO of Swirl Events
Anu Karwa is the founder and CEO of Swirl Events. Anu created Swirl Events to combine her passion for wine and bringing her friends together for memorable evenings. After earning her Advanced Certification from the internationally recognized Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and through her tasting experiences she realized wine did not have to be complicated or stuffy. Thus began her dream of sharing her passion through Swirl. Prior to launching Swirl Events, Anu was a product junkie working as a brand manager in the beauty industry for L'Oreal, John Frieda and most recently, Victoria Secret Beauty (PINK brand). Anu holds a B.S. in Finance & Economics from The Ohio State University and an MBA from Columbia Business School. Karwa is also a contributing editor to PageDaily.com
