Michele has also worked in Canada and the U.S. as a buyer and educator of wine and obtained the following credentials:

  • CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine) Society of Wine Educators
  • Certified Spanish Wine Educator The Wine Academy of Spain
  • WSET Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Wines & Spirits
  • Completed the International Sommelier Guild’s Diploma Program

Drawing upon her expertise as an educator, global grape trotter and eternal student of wine, ‘M’ offers a series of fun, informative Classes and “Grape Escapes” that appeal to both the beginner and industry pro. She will show you how to make wine more accessible and fun and provide you with some knowledge to better understand and (more importantly) enjoy your wine.
