Everything that I do is about educating, whether it’s teaching or consulting. We look at the entire world of wine – the business end, the viniculture; viticulture and how everything works – not only how it tastes or smells. 

Ready. Taste. Learn!

The Thru Vines Wine Geek Series is a selection of educational wine workshops that are for the naturally curious wine lover. They are meant to make you think outside the box, and therefore increase your understanding of why things are the way they are, and why wines taste the way they do.

Our courses are available as single workshops, or as a class series for community education event centers, fun in-home group settings or corporate and restaurant sales training.

In these two-hour classes, your wine educator creates an environment focused on students and consumers to feel relaxed and ask as many questions that arise in the learning process. You’ll sample a selection of wines of which are discussed as a basis of our learning topics.

The Wine Geek series is geared toward the consumer who wants a better understanding of processes, and wants to be a more informed buyer.

We are careful to give the most up to date information, so that they can make more educated decisions in their wine purchases. Wines tasted will represent the topic, focusing on introducing smaller producers, now available in our market.

Everything and anything wine.
