Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I'm in the service industry, currently working as a Sommelier at a champagne bar. In other words, service and hospitality are my life! However, I'm also an incredibly inquisitive person, always looking to educate myself further on wine, and help others get more educated about wine. I can help you with: wine education, wine pairings for dinners, wine and cheese nights (I worked in cheese for almost two years so this is a specialty and other passion of mine), or wine tasting/appreciation classes. I can also consult for cellars or private collections, helping you find rare offerings for your personal cellar, for investment purposes, or for gifts. All of these services can be tailored to individual client needs. I have a passion for teaching people about wine, as it's something I love so much and I want others to learn to love it too! I'm very skilled at teaching at all levels, as not too recently I was a novice in wine myself, and therefore have a clear understanding of what the important things are for people to learn, and what the best way to learn them is. Wine is my hobby, my career, and my all encompassing passion, and it is a great thing to be able to say that about the work you do!

Michael did a great job teaching me about the wine making process and helping me to learn how to idenitfy the types of wine that I like best. He taught me about the various aromas and tasting notes and I feel more prepared than ever to walk into a high end wine shop and easily pick out something I know I'll like! Thanks Michael for turning this wine novice into a wanna be wine snob!

Michael came into our office a couple of weeks back for a wine tasting and it was a great success! He is personable, kind, and funny! He was able to break the ice and get everyone excited and talking about the different types of wine he had selected for us :)

With COVID impacting my wife's birthday, I thought it would be fun to bring the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of Tuscany to our backyard for a social distancing Tuscan wine pairing party. Michael was instrumental in making this happen. He has extensive knowledge in Italian wines, which was a bonus, and worked with me to identify the best food pairing for each wine. He was very responsive putting in the time and effort to ensure everything was in order, even before the event began. He was early to help set up, brought his own glassware, and was lending a hand to serve both food and wine. Having him speak to the different wines he selected delivered a nice personal touch that proved to be both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend hiring Michael for your next personal or corporate event.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Because my services are so varied and can be anywhere from an hour to months-long projects, I don't have standard pricing. I'll work with you to find a price that fits your budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Getting to know the person and their goals is obviously step number one. Then, it is totally dependent on what the customer needs. Again, I offer a wide variety of services, so it can change from project to project.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have completed my Introductory Sommelier course through the Court of Master Sommeliers, along with finishing my WSET 3 Certification in Wine. I am also currently working on my WSET 4 Diploma, a qualification that will make me eligible to pursue the Master of Wine title, something that I dream of doing.
