May I Offer You a Glass of Bubbly?

May I offer you a glass of bubbly this evening? the sommelier asks.

You accept and are surprised that this sparkling wine is dry yet crisp and fruity. “What is this? I really like it,” you ask.

“It’s Cava from Spain,” the sommelier says. “Cava is typically fruit-forward and is made just like Champagne but from different grapes. I love starting an event with Cava because it’s so refreshing.”

You mingle with the other guests while tasting five more intriguing wines and nibbling on cheese and charcuterie. By the end of the evening, you discover a couple of new wines you really like and know where to find them.

You’re also thrilled that your favorite charity just received a lot of donations by featuring The Zin Diva, LLC, for tonight’s wine tasting fundraiser.

Based on actual events

Welcome to The Zin Diva, LLC!

I have a big development to announce! I officially own my own business, The Zin Diva, LLC! My business provides personalized wine service and education for parties and events.

As a Level 1 Sommelier and Certified Specialist of Wine, I love sharing my passion for food and wine both in my business, The Zin Diva, LLC, and through blogging.

The Zin Diva, LLC, provides sommelier and wine education services for your parties and events. I work with you to select wines to match your theme, menu, budget, personal tastes, and guest list. I bring the wines to your event and serve them at the right temperature and in the setting you prefer such as at a tasting table, sit-down dinner, or cocktail party. To indulge the senses further, I use Riedel wine glasses, which enhance the aromas and flavors of your wine selections.

You and your guests will receive the level of wine education you want to include pairing people with wines they’ll like, answering questions, displaying maps, and providing handouts when desired.
When I’m not planning wine events, I blog about my wine, food, and cooking experiences in detail at www.ZinDiva.com and in short form at Twitter using @Zin_Diva and on “The Zin Diva” at facebook.
I love to cook and share food with family and friends. What better way to get the word out on my latest recipe than with blogging? No more forgetting to email a recipe to someone who asked for it–all the information is online and ready to use. 🙂
As you can probably tell, I love learning about and drinking wine, pairing food and wine, and hosting wine tastings and parties. Ask me about planning a wine tasting for your group or providing wine service at your event by contacting me at beth.taylor@zindiva.com or 703-249-WINE.
