Specializing in Wine Recommendations, Tasting Events And Wine Travel


Travel

I have visited wine regions on 3 continents. I have visited some of the most unknown and most heralded wine producers in the world in many different regions. If there is one thing that ties them all together it is passion. Passion for wine and the people that make it. You can immediately pick it up in the first few sentences of conversation with a winemaker or vigneron. It’s an electric energy when it comes to talking about all things wine.

Each country and wine region will different customs when it comes to accepting visitors. Some roll out the red carpet, some won’t reply to your emails or phone calls. With some advice and personal connections, I can help you plan a trip or do the planning for you. We also offer advice on where to stay and where or what to eat.

Did you know in South Africa many if the wineries there offer accommodations to their guests? Italy has some of this as well. These little nuggets are sometimes the difference between a good trip and an unforgettable trip!
