Corporate Event Testimonials
“If you looking for someone who is incredibly wine-savvy who is articulate, charming, witty, entertaining and who is the antithesis of the ” a wine snob?” You’ve found him! Sean Moher has the two most important talents required of a wine educator: A thorough understanding of wine and food and a wonderfully sense of humor, which he uses to add levity to the often mysterious subject of wine and spirits. We have hired his services many of times to entertain and educate our clients and he never fails to deliver!
In a world of sameness, we always look forward to hosting our next event with Sean as mundane and same is never on the menu!”

Social Event Testimonials
“WOW!!!! Last night’s presentation and flight tasting was a hit! I was extremely pleased with how the evening unfolded. The evening was a success and everything went smoothly, better than what I had envisioned. I am very thankful and grateful to both of you for your hard work and efforts. The staff at Mamma Teresa also did a great job helping out last night.”
– Pia Lima, 40th Birthday Cognac Tasting Client
“Michel and I wanted to thank you for your helping hand in organizing a great night. Our guests truly enjoyed Geoffrey’s knowledge and his ability to work from room to room. The menu items that you selected were great. I must say that it was a great deal of work but the taste and the wine/scotch match were wonderful. My personal favourite was the white wine surprisingly (I am a red wine drinker). For food, the pizza was the group’s favourite followed by the pot stickers.
We received many compliments about the evening, Geoffrey’s skills and the wine and scotch combo.
Many thanks again for your help in making this event a memorable one.”
– Lynne & Michel Gervais, Birthday Tasting Experience Tasting Event Clients
“I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you, and to let you know that your Team is pretty awesome! The personal chef cooked up an amazing meal. Our Sommelier host was very knowledgeable, and happily entertained many questions.
Although the evening plans were not a surprise to me, we did keep it a secret from our friends. Our friends mean the world to us and it was fun to be able to celebrate this milestone year in a unique way with them. I know that they thoroughly enjoyed their evening. I hope that your team enjoyed themselves too!
We desired an evening that was comfortable, relaxing, and very fun! The personalities of your staff were a perfect pairing for such an evening. The food and wine pairings were amazing. I can tell you that a number of the selections will be enjoyed at our house in the years to come.
Please pass on my many thanks. It was a pleasure.
