What you'll do
In this private session, I'll help you identify the qualities that you like in a wine, so you'll know how to shop for your favorites with confidence. We’ll taste eight different wines with two-ounce pours. We’ll compare and contrast the wines to recognize tannin plus other factors that are involved in wine-making techniques. At the end of each session, you’ll receive a small wine profile card that contains tasting notes of your preferred flavors, textures, and wine regions. If you wish, you can order from the food and wine menus afterward. Even better, send us an email request for a custom-made wine pack to be personally selected and priced for you.
House made ricotta Please let us know of any dietary restrictions when you book. Slices of bread comes with the cheese.
Wine tasting You'll receive eight glasses of wine with two-ounce pours, as well as customized wine packs via email.
Wine profile grids You'll receive a tasting grid of the wines covered, and a wallet-sized wine profile for you to take home.
I’m one of 32 women to achieve the title Master Sommelier. I'm the owner of Corkbuzz, which has two locations in NYC and two in North Carolina. My inspiration for Corkbuzz hails from my big Italian Sunday night dinners with my grandmother, Rose. The Wall Street Journal called me the “It Girl” of the New York wine scene. Food and Wine magazine named me one of 2013’s Sommeliers of the Year.
