My specialty is meeting people where they are in their wine knowledge and helping them up their wine game.
I offer classes, tastings, and team-building exercises using wine education as the base.
I come into your home and lead a wine tasting class for you and a group of your friends, no matter their level of wine expertise.
You know how you feel nervous when you have to pick a wine from a wine list or how you feel completely lost when you have to select a wine at the wine shop? Well, I share tips and tricks to empower people to enjoy wine more and to be confident in their wine decisions.
How about a team building activity for your office or an incentive/reward for a sales team? I can come into your place of business to give your staff a fun, yet educational wine class. The goal is for the group to relax and enjoy their time together in a non-work related task. I can take it one step further and break the group up into teams while we conduct a blind tasting contest in which they compete against their colleagues!
I also educate your restaurant service staff to help improve customer service and increase wine sales. Monthly classes are key, as there is such high turnover with restaurant service staff. This consistent education will ensure that your beverage/alcohol revenues stay consistent and that your staff is well-educated and happy. The end-goal for you as the restaurateur/owner is to increase your beverage/alcohol sales. And with a trained and confident staff, this is sure to happen.
Do you love wine but have no idea what you like and have no idea how to tell wines apart? In this class I will walk you through the basics of wine tasting. We’ll talk about the wine’s appearance (i.e. color and intensity), the nose of the wine (i.e. what do you smell when you stick your schnoz in the glass?), and the palate (i.e. what the heck do you taste?). You will walk out of this class with some wine tasting basics that will help you up your wine game and drink better.
It seems like everyone is drinking rosé these days…well, join the club. Rosé has always been cool in my eyes! In this class we discuss the different types of rosés from different regions. And have no fear, there will be no White Zinfandel! You will taste a domestic rosé, a Spanish rosé, and 2 French rosés.
Natural wines are all the buzz these days. So what the heck are they and why should (or shouldn’t I) drink them? In this class you will learn what a natural wine is and taste through a few examples. We will also touch on organic and biodynamic wines, which are related to natural wines.

I am available for collaboration with digital/print publications. Also, wine producers looking to outsource content creation (i.e. newsletters and web content).
I am Los Angeles based and can also manage social media takeovers for events/festivals. This includes but is not limited to: Instagram stories, Facebook live, live Tweets, etc.
As a wine blogger, I frequently accept samples for review on the blog and on my social media channels.
I promise to always be honorable with the samples. I will evaluate all wines in good tasting settings and with no distractions. All reviews are my opinions, and mine only. Because of the volume of samples I receive, I cannot promise that all samples received will be reviewed, but I will do my best.
