I’m Jenn Knowles and after 25 years in the restaurant and luxury hotel industry as a Wine Director and sommelier, I decided to branch out on my own to offer my experience to a broader audience. My goal is to provide in-person and virtual wine and hospitality education to those who have just started the adventure as well as aficionados and professionals. From having a wine pairing party and learning to blind taste wine or organizing your wine cellar, I can customize and create a unique and memorable experience for you!
I also offer in-person and virtual industry training for both restaurant management and staff which can add enormous value to your guest’s experience. Please see the ‘Professional Services’ tab for more info.
Throughout my career I have recognized that many people have been conditioned to believe that if there is an ‘expert’ around to speak about a subject then we must defer to that expert empirically. However, there are no experts when it comes to tasting wine and finding foods you love. Sure, there are people who know more than you might about wine regions and production, but they can’t smell or taste what YOU do. Only YOU can be an expert on that.
