Why taste with Joelle?

My wine tastings and courses are based on 28 years experience in wine writing, wine education, wine judging and hosting tastings for Regional Wines & Spirits, the NZ School of Food & Wine, Lincoln University wine students and private wine tastings. 

The knowledge I have gained over this time and from wine qualifications is underpinned with extensive experience in wine tasting. I have the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 4 Diploma, the highest qualification from the English based WSET and a globally recognised qualification.
