Hi wine lovers!

My name is Maria, I'm a wine expert and the founder of Taste&Talk company. We do wine meet ups: tastings, blind tastings, quizzes, corporate events.

I went to wine school, and I've tasted I think more than 3000 different wines. I've been to many wineries and wine places.

Being a fan of infographics and system-based approach I tried to make my courses as easy as possible. Structured, short and sweet.
