What we're about

We are a group dedicated to educational and entertaining wine tasting classes! No previous wine knowledge is necessary. I am a sommelier and winemaker, and I am your teacher. Hello!

If you have never been to one of my classes, here's what you get to do:

-Taste 10 wines along with me, a friendly and down-to-earth sommelier and winemaker

-Work as a group to figure out your own personal tasting notes

-Taste wines comparatively rather than one at a time-- which is my favorite way to learn

-Learn how your brain process aromas and taste

-Learn about winemaking basics

-Be able to identify wine flavors like acid, tannin, sweetness, and body

-Taste 4 whites, 2 roses, and 4 reds

-Buy some wines to-go from Spring Restaurant, at a discount!

-Feel like a pro by the time class is over

Classes last 2 hours. It's educational, but also fun and entertaining because hey, it's wine. My idea is that cracking open a can of beer isn't intimidating, so why can't wine be the same?

About me:

My name is Floreana and I am an LA native. I'm a sommelier and a winemaker, and I've worked in restaurants since I was 16. I like to keep wine as down-to-earth as possible. Learn more about me and the classes I teach at http://www.florsomm.com
