What Others Say About Us


I have been working with Virginia Philip for many years during which time I have come to know what this true “Master” of the wine world is really all about.  There are few if any high level wine professionals who do not know her, or at least know of her outstanding reputation.  When I started collecting I had the ability to distinguish red wine from white wine and the knowledge of what I liked.  Bringing those two attributes (ok, one attribute) to Virginia and asking for her help was the best move I could have made.  Virginia has a supremely deep understanding of all things wine (and for that matter food and spirits) and equally important to me, she has the uncanny ability to relate this information to both experts and beginners alike.

When we were planning our return from Tuscany, our number one fear was where will we find a food and wine culture similar to here?! Within a few weeks of returning home, we popped in to VPWSA and found a literal Oasis in a world of mass production. Not only were there wines from small producers around the globe but also classes from the area’s top winemakers, owners, brand ambassadors and educators.   VPWSA is our paradise here on planet earth!!  Where else can you find bespoke/ artisan (artisanal) wines?  We not only taste them but hear the stories of their birth and growth in vineyards dotted around the globe? Throw in a spattering of top chef’s from elite restaurants sharing their favorite dishes, blended together by our very own Master Sommelier Virginia Philip, and you have a creation that is much more than the sum of the parts!
