with G.M. "Pooch" Pucilowski

During my thirty-plus years as a Certified Wine Educator, I have found that, to this day, people still view wine as too complicated to understand. If there’s anything at all complicated about wine I can assure you it is only in the process of making it. For most of us, discovering our own tastes should be about as complicated as it gets.

I provide a variety of services to those interested in wine.  Start with a fun class on a riverboat or book a private tour for friends. I offer a wide variety of courses ranging in price and participant level of expertise. Let the tasting begin!

Hidden Wine

California has many wineries that aren't
on the "wine road" maps. Visit some of these hidden delights
and discover wines beyond Cabernet and
Chardonnay. And for many, these wineries offer affordably priced wines.

“Pooch has tremendous
knowledge about wine –
excellent value and a lot of fun!
