ABOUT ME

I didn't really think too much about wine; I was more of a beer drinker. But that all changed after a random visit to a winery in 2001. Seeing the love and skill that goes into making wine - the craft - changed my life.

Learning to understand wine showed me that every day, and every thing, can be a meditation on the joy of savoring. This epiphany, and the need to share it with others, is what sparked Wine Living. For eighteen years since, I've been on a mission to share what I’ve learned.

Hi, I'm Marc. I'm a wine and cocktails lover, self-taught cook, world traveler, media host & producer and business owner. I’m a 2012 Diploma-Certified wine & spirits professional with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust of London. I've also produced over 180 videos about wine, spirits, food and culture (you can find them all here). My work has been recognized by prominent wine and lifestyle publications.

But the best part of what I do, is sharing all of this, with others. I’ve led wine events and tastings for thousands of people at all levels of experience. It never gets old, seeing someone new fall in love with wine.

I offer pro tips, tricks, and secrets on how to get more out of the glass, in the wine store, and in your daily life. And if you want me to lead a fun, custom wine event for you at your own venue, call on me anytime.
