Marketing Promotion, Education and Training

Combining a career in organizational training skills and credentials in wine education, I offer a range of services available directly to wine and hospitality industries, including marketing promotions, staff training and seminars suitable for organizational retreats. My emphasis is upon the pursuit of excellence and quality using wine appreciation as a learning focus.

Utilizing my many contacts developed during wine-related travels, I have also brokered imports and distribution arrangements, particularly with wineries in New Zealand and South America. 

I founded and was President of the Olympic Peninsula Enological Society (OPES).

I have traveled extensively tasting and evaluating wines and meeting with wine experts in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, France, Germany, as well as the many wine areas of the USA. I am a member of and certified by the Society of Wine Educators.

   My formal education includes degrees from the University of Michigan, Xavier University plus graduate courses from Johns Hopkins and University of Oklahoma.

New recommendation: ‘EQ’ label Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc from Matetic Vineyards in San Antonio, Chile. This newly imported line represents the new trends in Chilean wines towards top of the line quality by boutique specialty wineries in that country. Distributed by Cascade distributors in the Seattle area, these wines have all received high ratings, yet represent a moderate price line.
