"Good wine is a necessity of life for me." – Thomas Jefferson

Sommeliers are trained first and foremost in wine, so we are happy to bring you an extensive list of services focused on wine and wine training.

For Individuals: Don't go into another wine tasting or wine festival feeling overwhelmed or confused. Learn the difference between Pinot Grigio and Pinot Blanc and why everyone clamors for a great Pinot Noir. Set up a private tasting class or general Wine 101 seminar and you'll be a wine expert in to time. These small trainings also make great gifts for a bride and groom who may do some wine tastings on their honeymoon. Or set up a wine tasting with a professional sommelier for a bachelor or bachelorette party!
