Sign up for a Virtual Wine Tasting!

The best way to learn wine is by tasting it! Wine shouldn’t have to be intimidating. Instead, it should be looked at as a way to travel through time to a place, or even a memory. My goal is to make wine fun & approachable while still giving you the necessary skills to asses not only the quality of a wine, but pinpoint what it is you love (or don’t love) about a particular wine. 

About Me

I’m originally from Rochester, NY, but have been living in New York City since 2013. Upon my arrival to New York, I entered the fashion world and worked my way from the retail sales floor to managing the wholesale business on the corporate side. I was bit by the “wine bug” in 2014 during my first trip to Napa Valley during harvest season. As soon as I arrived home, I  immediately started my WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) journey, and the rest was history. I have since completed the WSET 3 advanced level, started a successful wine blog that has taken me to wine regions all over the world, became a French Wine Scholar candidate, and most recently became the Private Client Wine Advisor for Château de Pommard and VIVANT in the Northeast.

Wine 101

If you’ve ever wondered what sommeliers mean when they say “tannin” or “body,” then this tasting is for you! In Wine 101 we will break down both a red and a white wine and identify things like aromas, acidity, body, tannin and finish. We will chat about the basic winemaking process, and how some choices in the winery affect what you find in your glass. This is the perfect class for anyone who wants to feel more confident navigating a wine list, or wine shop!

Sessions will be held on Zoom and will last approximately 1 hour. After the specific tasting is chosen, I will reach out via email to discuss your budget so I can select the wines. I usually like to stay between $20-$25/bottle, but that can go up or down accordingly. Once payment is complete via Venmo or PayPal, I will send you the links to the wine via wine.com. Use code, 'GRAPECHIC' at checkout to get 10% off your order. If you would rather shop local, I’m happy to source the wines for you to pick up!
