Wine + Comedy
I believe that wine should never be intimidating, despite its reputation. When I was studying to become a Sommelier, I found the process of breaking down the characteristics of wine to be simple and fun – but I realized it’s not often presented like that! So I made it my mission to do something that very few Somms have done: make wine fun, informative, and most importantly, entertaining!
With a blend of solid wine info and comedy, you’ll be sure to taste, laugh, and learn!

PRIVATE WINE TASTING
Travel around the world from the comfort of your own home with my interactive private wine tastings. With curated wines specific to the tastes of you and your guests, you’ll learn about trends, wine history, and why cheap wine might just taste expensive (and vice versa!) With an experienced sommelier and stand-up comedian wrapped into one laugh out loud package, there’s lots to laugh about and lots to learn about.
Events can include anything from birthday parties and bridal showers to corporate events or holiday get-togethers.
When you invest in my concierge services, you’re not just getting to work with THE California Wine Guy.

After a quick interview via email or phone, I’ll put together the perfect trip for one or more people based on your likes, budget, and time frame.
Bring the fun of an interactive, private wine tasting to your next office party or team bonding experience with a curated, private event.
