WINE MASTERCLASSES

As a wine consultant and chef, I fully believe there is no meal without wine (maybe breakfast!), and no wine without food.

My masterclass series will introduce you to high-quality wines at all price points from small family vineyards and passionate winemakers who farm organically. You’ll discover how these wines will interact with different plant-based dishes and suggestions and examples of wonderful pairings that you can try out at home.

Most importantly, wine is fun and should be unpretentious and all-inclusive. Whether you’re a novice or a wine geek who works with wine for a living like me, I hope you will find this series interesting and that you leave class inspired to keep seeking out new wines to try out.

Essentially, if you are a food and wine lover—this place is for you!

Salute!

Vegan, Organic, Biodynamic

What to Look for When Buying Wine

With all the marketing, celebrities, and big companies vying for shelf space, market share and the attention of customers in a sea of wine, it can be overwhelming to figure out what the differences are between vegan, organic, biodynamic and natural wine. Which is better?

Are all vegan or organic wines the same? What questions should I ask the store owner/sommelier to learn more about how wine is made and should I blindly trust the labels?

This and so much more will be covered in this enlightening class. Remember: knowledge is power and I will teach you how to do your own research so you can be sure that what you are drinking is what is advertised (or not!).

“The flavor of food almost always reveals the quality of a wine and exalts it.
In turn, the quality of a wine complements the pleasure of a food and spiritualizes it.”

Luigi “Gino” Veronelli, wine critic (1926-2004)
