Over the past 28 years I have created many opportunities and had the pleasure to meet, learn and work with some of the world’s most passionate and talented winemakers, viticulturists, chefs, restaurateurs and retailers. For nearly 20 years, I have consulted and made wine in New Zealand, Australia, Italy and France. Over the same period, sharing what I have learnt with others, hosting tastings, wine classes and bespoke chef’s dinners alike. Along with being asked to be the ambassador for over 70 wine brands from around the world.
During this time - I have received generous feedback, comments and acknowledgements about my passion, dedication and contribution to the industry. The following are a collection of the most recent acknowledgments from respected industry leaders around the world.

 

The EISCH 'Sensis-Plus' Tasting Experience - Introductory Level:

The EISCH ‘Sensis-Plus’ Tasting Experience is a unique, educational and entertaining experience. You don’t need to be a winemaker, wine-writer or an expert to smell and taste the difference that an EISCH glass can make to all wine. This is the perfect event to train your staff, entertain your customers and to discover the personality of wine.
During the EISCH ‘Sensis-Plus’ Tasting Experience - which runs for approximately 1 hour, you will be shown how these highly designed wine glasses enhance the overall experience and taste of all wine.

 

Stage 1 - Introduction to Wine:

The world of wine is fascinating, intriguing and can be very rewarding. There are few greater pleasures in life than opening a bottle of wine you carefully selected yourself - (or even better, you have cellared patiently for a number of years) and enjoying it with good food and good friends.
However, it can also be an intimidating subject - as the sheer number of wines and styles available on our retail shelves and on wine-lists in New Zealand has never been greater. It can be a process of great confusion selecting the right wine for the right occasion and pairing it with cuisine.

 

Stage 2 - Intermediate Level:

This wine class is designed for the more experienced and confident wine person. If you are more than passionate about wine and are focused on the differences in wine and want to learn more about the classic wine varietals and regions of the world - then this Intermediate Level - Stage 2 Wine Class is for you.

This wine class is aimed at the ‘Intermediate’ wine student who already has a good, general knowledge and understanding about grape varietals and how wine is made. Along with some experience with wine and food, and now wants to go to the next level.
