Mark was a fantastic host and he made the entire evening very interesting. My sister and I had a very enjoyable evening learning about wine tasting and cheese as well as getting to know other people present. Would highly recommend.

Thanks Yu-ju H for your lovely comments. I love helping people understand wine and the reasons why some wines suit them better than others. I hope to see you again.
