Sommelier On Demand
Have you ever found yourself in a restaurant wondering which wine to pair with your meal? Have you ever invited friends over for dinner and didn't know what glasses to use or how long you should decant your wine for? Do you need advice on finding restaurants with interesting wine lists? Do you need an assistance with designing the perfect wedding menu from great wines to wonderful foods?
In this day in age, with the continued high-demand for fine and rare wines, and more and more fraudsters trying to take advantage of the industry, wine authentication has never been more important.
Wine authentication can be a tricky business, but with the help of Maureen Downey – the world’s chief expert in wine fraud, counterfeit wine and fine wine authentication – ARVI takes this subject seriously. Working closely with Downey and her team for specialized training sessions, several members of ARVI have learned about her trademarked ‘Chai Method’ of verification first hand.
