Owner

I started to embrace my passion for wine and wine knowledge at 16 when my family moved to Frankfurt, Germany. I loved boating down the Rheine River with my classmates, enjoying a glass or two of fine German Riesling. Fast forward to 2010, transitioning from a 20 year in IT, I began studying at the International Wine Guild in Denver and continued my education through their entire 20 class curriculum, subsequently becoming one of 3 instructors holding a ‘Master Wine Educator’ certification.

I have earned WSET and CSW certifications and constantly work on increasing my wine knowledge base. I have paired my education with extensive travel to wine producing areas of Europe which has only served to fuel the excitement of discovery and encouraged me to never stop learning about and ‘sampling’ great wines of the world.

Teaching wine classes to students – awakening their passion for wine – has encouraged me to use my acquired wine expertise, sharing exposure to the genre of wine – plants, food, people, places. I am excited to use the power of the internet to enhance and enrich anyone’s wine experience globally.
