Book me as your personal sommelier and become a wine expert!
I am often asked, "How do I read a French wine label?" "I love drinking pinot grigio (or chardonnay or cab or pinot noir) in the US - why does it taste different in France?" "Wine lists in France make no sense to me - how do I know I'm getting a good wine?" "Which grapes are in which wine?" "Wine vocab - help!"
As a trained sommelier, I take immense joy in sharing my passion with others and teaching curious minds about the intricacies of French wine. Join me in my Oakland apartment, a local wine bar, or your home for private tastings and personalized events. Contact me for more info!
