Laurie Forster is one of America’s leading wine experts and author of the award-winning book The Sipping Point: A Crash Course in Wine. Laurie is a Certified Sommelier, National Speaker and TV personality who is not afraid to tell you her first wine came from a box. Her edgy approach to demystifying wine caught the eye of major networks and led her to guest appearances on The Dr Oz Show, FOX Morning News, Martha Stewart Living Today, ABC and many more. Now, Laurie is coming Northern Virginia with this hilarious event.
What the heck is this event?
Stand Up Sommelier at Potomac Point Winery is a one-hour original comedy show & wine tasting that includes audience participation. Unlike any other wine tasting you’ve experienced, award-winning sommelier and comedian, Laurie Forster, demystifies wine in a way that harkens back to her Jersey roots, her previous career in software and exposes her hilarious life being a self-proclaimed “cool Mom.”
Laurie has taken the enjoyment of wine to a whole new level and now brings her live stage show to your event. Not only will Laurie have your guests laughing out loud with her outlandish comedy and playful audience participation, but your guests will actually walk away knowing more about wine and feeling more confident about what they already knew.
During the show, Forster leaves no stone unturned when it comes to talking about wine and why we like it. Maybe you love the full body of a Cab Franc or the crisp acidity of a Viognier. Who knows? Who cares? But by the end of this show three things are certain. You are confident about what you like, exhausted from laughing and completely toasted. Relax with your wine tastings and enjoy because this is a “tasting” you will never forget. Video Clip Sneak Peek.
