    Thank you for hosting my friend Sonia’s 40th surprised birthday.  She was so surprised and impressed to have her very own Sommelier at her party.  The evening went off as planned and our friends thought it was a unique idea for an event as it got people mingling while learning something new about wine.

    Susan – Everyone had a great time Saturday night at the Italian wine tasting for Yves’s birthday party.  You were outstanding – and shared fascinating stories about your travels to Italy and we all learned from your extensive Sommelier knowledge. The wine selection was great and everyone seemed to have a different favourite.
