Eddie utilizes pairs of wines to enhance your dinner, and will work with your chef to custom-design a dinner unlike any others you've seen. Eddie discusses the concept of "food-wines" and demonstrates why some wines enhance food flavors better than others. This is highly entertaining...with an explosive start-up, followed by humorous anecdotes and true stories.
Learn Something New! All too often people seem to adhere to a strict set of rules (protocol) when it comes to entertaining with wine and food. What's that all about? It's time to learn how to do it differently. Listen to the way Master Sommelier Eddie Osterland would like to see you do it.
Go way beyond the expectations of your clients/guests: Use the right glasses, use large-format bottles, chill the reds, decant the wines, serve the best foods and wines first, go with pairs of wines that teach your guests about food-wines.
