"Had the opportunity to engage Kevin Cleary, DipWSET, FWS of Let's Talk Wine and Food to lead a unique sales team event. His passion in talking about the skills of the Sommelier and how they can be applied to the selling process was tremendously effective and well received by the team. We concluded the evening with a wine tasting featuring a variety of New California wines. A truly different style team building and learning event!" Adam Gurian, Principal, Trikinder Advisors LLC

"Kevin held an informative and enjoyable Wine Tasting at our home. The tasting featured a broad range of New California wines for our guests to sample while he educated us about all aspects of the specific wine we were tasting. As a wine expert and an all-around great guy, Kevin educated and entertained us with his industry knowledge and his engaging presentation style. He provided all the wine, wine glasses and a nice handout with details of each wine for us to keep after the class. Hosting a wine tasting in our home was a fun and unique experience and we will certainly do this again soon" Molly S., Williston, VT
