your specific wishes and needs.

Want to throw an awesome party with “homemade” food but want nothing to do with the “homemade” part? Let me do all of the work for you!

Host a Wine Education CElebration for you and your Friends!

Do you love drinking wine but wish you knew just a little more about it? I’m here to educate you! Having worked in the wine industry in the Napa Valley for three years, and with my Level One Sommelier certification and Certified Specialist of Wine designation in hand, I love sharing all that I’ve learned with others. Whether you’re interested in learning about a specific wine region or just want a general overview of food and wine pairings, let me help guide the way. I’ll work with you to create the perfect “lesson” for you and your friends. These Wine Education Celebrations may include (but are not limited to):

  • An in-depth look at a specific country or region’s wines
  • Classic food and wine pairings (I’ll even bring the food for you!)
  • Blind tastings
  • Comparison of wines from different countries, regions or vintages
  • A look into how wine is made and how the winemaking process affects a wine’s quality and taste
  • Guidance on how to get the most out of your wine tasting experiences
