Laurie Forster

Wine Expert

As a certified sommelier, national speaker, and TV personality, Laurie Forster’s incredible career has given her a renowned name amongst wine enthusiasts.

Laurie has outstanding knowledge and experience in wine tasting, complemented by a humble and down-to-earth personality. She won’t shy away from telling you her first wine came in a box!

For over 17 years she has been touring the US offering wine corporate events to some recognizable organizations in the world, such as Discovery Channel, MetLife, and even Microsoft! And the best part is, that they’re extremely fun events to take part in! Her amazing collection of reviews and feedback have even labeled her talks as ‘The best online event of the year.’

But if that wasn’t good enough, she’s also authored an award-winning book: The Sipping Point: A Crash Course in Wine. Her deep knowledge and expertise led her to many guest show appearances, such as The Dr. Oz Show, FOX Morning News, Martha Stewart Living Today, and ABC News at Noon. Impressive, right?
