Michele Graber

'M' Wine

 

Michele began ‘M’ Wine Education & Consulting in 2009 upon returning from a trip to France and Spain.  Sharing over fifteen years of acquired wine knowledge  and introducing people to the world of wine is what ‘M’ loves to do.  Michele has worked in Canada and the U.S. as a buyer and educator of wine and obtained numerous industry credentials.  Drawing upon her expertise as an educator, global grape trotter and eternal student of wine, ‘M’ offers a series of fun, informative Classes and “Grape Escapes” that appeal to both the beginner and industry pro.  She will show you how to make wine more accessible and fun and provide you with some knowledge to better understand and (more importantly) enjoy your wine.  "Wine uncomplicated from grape to glass."
