Wine + Beer + Spirits Tastings
Years of sipping, studying, teaching, and writing are what makes The Food and Wine Diva an enthusiastic apostle of wine, beer, and spirits.
First and foremost Summer Whitford is a consumer advocate and her tastings are a fantastic way to begin your journey of discovery, whether you're a novice or long-time collector. Summer is fluent in geek speak, so she's the right person to be your wine, beer, and spirits guide--don't worry, you won't get any boring sip, swirl, spit, and talk about soil and such--that kind of content is reserved for our trade tastings.
