Discover Your Palate
One of my favorite ways to consult is helping you better acquaint yourself with your own palate. We will help you decide for yourself why you do or do not like a wine. We help you read labels and learn how certain wines will taste. We’ll teach you what to avoid and how to not get ripped off. We’ll teach you about how to detect faults in your wine so you get your money back. Much more than a wine 101 class, “Discovering Your Palate” is the key to unlocking wine knowledge in your life and your budget.
