  • I first met Leslee at a “Bubbles Class” at Cooks of Crocus on Grand Avenue. After finding her very personable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about wine, I invited her over to host a wine tasting at my condo with my very close friends. Leslee converted the non-wine lovers into appreciating a glass of wine and wine lovers to understand their palate. I am proud to call Leslee my personal wine Sommelier, mentor, and friend. I hope you get to experience Leslee’s personality and love for wine. Jen T.
