Wine, Dine & Punchlines with The Standup Sommelier

TV personality, award-winning sommelier and comedian Laurie Forster delivers an edgy, off-beat hilarious seminar where wine meets punchline. Using her down to earth approach to “wine education”, Forster peels back the labels of a few of her favorite wines from around the world while she exposes some of the deep secrets of the wine industry and why she thinks it’s so darn funny!

 Forster leaves no stone unturned when it comes to talking about wine and why we like it.  Maybe you love the full body of a Malbec or the crispy acidity of a Pinot Grigio. Who knows?  Who cares?  But by the end of the show 3 things are certain: you are more confident about what you like, exhausted from laughing and completely relaxed.

Forster will work with our chef to create pairings that will not only complement the wines but interactively teach you the secrets to perfect pairings.  You’ll learn, laugh and never look at wine the same way again!
