Support Locals

As you know hospitality and wine-industry folks have been impacted by COVID19.  We would like to support local wine professionals as much as possible when selecting wines for classes. If you have been directly impacted and sell wine, please reach out to me so we can see if we can use your wines in any of my classes.  Also, if you’d like a special class featuring your wines, please reach out and we can set something up!  [email protected]
