Wine 101  


  • Do voluminous wine lists make your eyes rolls and hands sweat?
  • Tired of snooty sommeliers?
  • No idea where to begin in a wine store?
  • Not sure what to bring to a party?


Before I went to school to study for my sommelier certification, I checked all those boxes! At the time, my wine knowledge could fit in a thimble and even though I’d been to cooking school, lived in France, and consumed copious amounts of wine, I quickly realized that I had never really tasted the wine.

My goal is to take the intimidation out of wine, to make it fun and accessible and to expand your exposure to the world of wine so that you can easily navigate a wine list, shop for the perfect bottle to bring to a friend or simply enjoy a glass of wine at home.


Classes will be conducted live via Zoom, fully interactive and all hands-on tasting. We will discuss the history of the wines, the terroir, the best food pairings with each wine and more.
