I am a wine enthusiast who loves to teach people about wine! My philosophy is that wine should be fun, not intimidating or snooty. I can customize classes around wine regions, grape varietal or personal preference. In addition to teaching wine classes, I also consult on wine lists for restaurants and hotels. My unique approach ensures that a wine list not only matches the identity of the business but exceeds the customer's expectations once the bottle is on their table!
