My Wine School is Back, Milwaukee and Online, in 2013 Jessica Bell. In 2000, Jessica Bell graduated from Duke University with a degree in Economics and Spanish and went on to work for Goldman Sachs in New York City. After three years in New York, she decided to give the other half of her degree some use, and moved to Spain. She found work at a winery and found her true calling. Jessica Bell, owner of My Wine School, was awarded a US government contract in 2012 to consult on economic initiatives in The Republic of Georgia, namely wine tourism and wine education. The program sent Bell to Georgia twice in 2012. She has created a “scrapbook”, comprised of her visits and research, including news articles, personal blogs, pictures and even the courses she developed for the Georgian trade, so you too can get to know this amazing country, its people and wines! Join her on The Great Spanish Wine Adventure tour October 2014.

Banish Your Collector Anxiety, How is The Coravin System Different? – Greg Lambrecht
The Coravin System leaves the cork in the bottle. Wine flows out but oxygen never gets in, eliminating the problem of oxidation. It’s easy to use and allows you to access multiple bottles at a time. Try creating a dinner party menu specially paired with wines from a favorite region, or hosting a blind wine tasting at your house with friends. Explore regions and varietals you haven’t tried before. Sample different vintages, experiment with food and wine pairings, and expand your palate by comparing and contrasting. With the Coravin System you can sip, share and enjoy your fine wines without committing to the whole bottle or wasting a drop.
