"Special NYC evening of wine tasting and food pairing with an engaging, knowledgeable Master of Wine; learned so much had more importantly, had an amazing time celebrating a special 50th birthday."

"French wine is a complicated subject, so it was more than beneficial to have Ms Reilly lead a day-long series of educational seminars for NYC’s wine industry and trade members at our trade tasting in May 2015. Her ability to lucidly present 35+ French wine producers, companies and regions, her flexibility regarding last-minute change of plans, and her overall preparation for the seminars and knowledge of France and its wines were a welcome and appreciated complement to the day."

For the Wine Trade
"In the world of Country Clubs, the goal of exceeding everyone’s expectations is very challenging if not impossible – enter Charles Curtis. His depth of knowledge, passion and gracious demeanor had our members eating out of his palm. I have had several of the members that attended inquire as to when he will be back – my hope is sooner rather than later – he is truly a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to work with."
