Denis Carignan, customer


“How would you like to order a bottle of wine in a restaurant and know that it’s not good? Can you

tell the waiter why it’s not good and why you are sending it back? Wouldn’t it be great to tell the

waiter exactly what you are looking for and not be subjected to his/her interpretation of what you like?”

Paul Vernis, customer



“I sprung these kits on my guests this past weekend and it’s amazing what happens! Everyone,

without exception, wanted to know where I got them and where they can find them!

Lots of fun and such a great conversation piece on everyone’s favourite topic: wine.”

sharing with friends and an indispensable tool for true wine appreciation learning! Out with the

old stuffy snobbery around wine knowledge and ‘in’ with the new ways of wine leisure education.”
