Wine List Consulting & Wait Staff Training


Wine List Consulting


I taste hundreds of wines and brands each year, and through speaking engagements, and online venues I’m in constant contact with normal wine people, so I can help you put together a wine list that’s balanced, interesting, and that will engage your guests.

My experience working in the on-premise world of the wine industry benefits you — I’ll help you work with distributors to get the most from your list. Consultations are generally done remotely and are quick, efficient, unbiased, and client-focused. The approach involves my data-driven methodology that helps you:

  • Perform gap analysis to figure out what is missing on your list
  • Identify money makers and losers
  • Help you manage wine inventory
  • Apply principles and ideas immediately to help you boost revenues immediately

Contact me to create a well-balanced wine list that your guests will love.


Wait Staff Training


Having developed the international wait staff training program for one of the largest wineries in the world, I’m an experienced staff trainer who will custom-tailor a wait staff program for your restaurant needs. From one-time sessions to class series, I’ll work with you and your staff to ensure the materials are appropriate, re-usable, and aimed at boosting your wine revenue and the caliber of your wine program. 

Contact me to discuss how we can create a custom program that will get your staff excited about wine and help increase your wine sales immediately.
