I recently worked with Ellen on an online client appreciation event that I hosted. And I was blown away by both her knowledge & bubbly personality! The wine also did not disappoint! Thank you, Ellen, for bringing my clients an experience they wouldn’t be able to have anywhere else!

Excellent service and experience in selecting appropriate wines that meet your taste. Wine Consul went above and beyond on recommending vegan wines and personally hand selected the wines based on my needs. Very detailed oriented and amazing customer service. Highly recommended


A fun time and wonderful to hang out with friends learning about wines!
