Here's what some of our consistent wine tasters recently told us:

"I can recommend wines to strangers in the liquor store"

I was standing in front of the wine section at the grocery store when the man next to me said, "Hey, do you know anything about wine?" After a moment's hesitation, I thought - yes, yes I do! So I said it. "Yes, I do. What are you looking for?"

I was able to send him on his way with a yummy cab sav for less than $10 -- and I realized how much I have learned at Joie de Vin's Virtual Wine Tastings!  Then I grabbed the New York State Riesling and went on my merry way. Good wines to be found in lots of places!


"Never before have I received so much value from one website!"

I signed up for the monthly membership thinking, 'what have I got to lose?'. And what I discovered was a wine lover's paradise!

I love the online courses, and can't wait to join the next virtual wine tasting. I learn something new every day from this membership!
