Very knowledgeable and easy to work with, always exceeding my expectations.

I hired Billie Joyce to curate the wines for my wine bar. We have over 76 different wines on the menu and15 different wine flights. All are accessible and delicious. She also created wine education modules for the staff, which included videos and quizzes. Billie is very knowledgeable and easy to work with, always exceeding my expectations. I truly cannot sing this wine consultant and educator praises loud enough!
