"The best thing about studying wine is no matter how long you work at it you'll never know it all."

It is with this in mind that Maggie continues to not only teach about wine but study it. She holds the Certified Specialist of Wine credential from the Society of Wine Educators, a French Wine Scholar post-nominal from The French Wine Society, and completed a year of study with The International Sommelier Guild. In addition, she holds Master Level Certificates for the French regions of Provence, the Rhône, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Languedoc-Roussillon.  She is certified to teach the French Wine Scholar curriculum and is a Sud de France Certified Instructor.  Maggie has worked for many years in wine retail, wholesale and as a restaurant wine director. 

“An important part of what I do is help people feel comfortable with wine.  It is a universal pleasure, a means to bring people together. And one of the best things about wine tasting is that it’s subjective. There are no wrong answers to what you’re sensing from the glass. A rare and welcome ambiguity!”

Here are some remarks from recent students:

"Maggie is a fun, friendly, encouraging & informative instructor.  She makes everyone feel their questions are valid"

"Great class. Very engaging. Learned a great deal about wine.  Thank you Maggie for sharing your passion!"

"The class, subject and instructor made this a wonderful class and experience.  I would readily take this class (or subject) again.  Maggie was fantastic!"

" I loved Maggie! She is a wealth of knowledge and her passion is contagious."
