About Spin The Bottle

Spin the Bottle is based on a simple premise: appreciating wine begins with understanding your own palate. Figuring out what you like (and why) is the single most important thing you can do to ensure your wine well-being. It sounds like an obvious point, but it’s not. A lot of wine education includes arcane information that gets you no closer to successfully navigating an unfamiliar wine list or finding bottles you love for under $20 at any wine store.

Through my Spin the Bottle classes and blog, I’m here to help. You’ll learn how to really pay attention to what’s going on in your glass and determine what you do – and don’t – like. I’ll teach you why the wines you prefer taste like they do, and help you find the right words to describe your preferences to sommeliers, wine store clerks, or your wine bully brother-in-law.

Like anything worth doing, learning about wine can get complicated. But I’m here to make it easier — and a lot more fun.
