Specialist in Pairing Wine with Travel

My entire life has centered on the travel. I was born into the travel business, being the son of a renowned airline executive. My family and career in the travel industry enabled me to travel the world for business and leisure. Through my travels, I developed a keen interest in wine and our recent vacations have been in wine regions such as Rhone, Bordeaux and Mosel. In 2020, my interest in wine led me to enroll in sommelier training and I now have a Level 2 Award in Wine (with Distinction) from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust. I specialize in pairing wine with travel and focus on taking my customers to the wine regions of the world on small ship cruises. In addition to being a wine sommelier, I am a CLIA Accredited Cruise Counselor, an ASTA Verified Travel Advisor and a Certified North America Destination Expert. Let me show you a luxurious vacation to the wine regions of the world.

My Travel Stories

Rhone River Cruise

Our trip started in Lyon, the culinary capital of France, although I opted out of traditional Lyonnaise Bouchon, which specializes in organ meat.  Lyon is a beautiful city with a rich history and was enjoyable to visit.

From there we visited a small family winery in Beaujolais, where the wine of much higher quality... Read more from my Rhone River Cruise story.
