CODE OF ETHICS + WINE IS FOOD AND OUR PHILOSOPHY
WHAT’S WINE IS FOOD AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

WINE IS FOOD is a movement + community that brings food, wine and the people you love TOGETHER (whether near or far) via the SOMM@HOME experience/in-home events and “winebinars” (remote events). WINE IS FOOD promotes the enjoyment of wine as a food product, and the art of pairing wine with food (with the signature WINE IS FOOD “pairing style”). WINE IS FOOD enforces the virtue of “Eating Wine Responsibly.”

WHY WINE IS FOOD?

WINE IS FOOD because you smell it, savor it, chew it and swallow it. In order to realize this, an individual has to live it, experience it, feel it, eat it, and on occasion, you’ve got to make it.

When we refer to WINE IS FOOD, we’re talking about wine “the juice” (the agricultural food product). The way wine is made, or the process of wine making, DOES NOT explain the true meaning or nature of wine. Enhancing the wine experience, buying or choosing better wines based on the belief that wine IS food assists us in creating “the experience”. Seeing beyond the juice is the next step in going to the realm of how wine as a food product affects our diet, our relationships and ultimately the way we as social beings interact with each other around the dining table. When wine is eaten at the table it allows us to create, or re-create, a setting that can release the stress or the idea of being busy, bored or simply tired of our everyday activities. When wine is perceived as any other food product, you start thinking and treating wine as a fundamental staple and part of your everyday meal. And yes we can reflect ourselves in our food when we drink or eat wine.

MY MISSION STATEMENT

MY MISSION

My philosophy allows you to learn about wines, food pairings and also to understand the true nature of wines. I invite you to bring your guests to learn about wines and also to appreciate wines beyond the classic relationship between wine and land.

It’s innate for humans, and our duty, to seek to understand the world we live in. And, in this case, it’s my duty and life’s work to guide and help the world understand and re-establish the true nature of wine. It’s my mission to discover and share the true intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of wine. It’s food for our mind, spirit, soul, and body. The true nature of wine isn’t in the bottle but in the sharing of wine. Wine wasn’t created to be drunk but rather eaten and shared like any other food product!! I will teach you a new way of experiencing wine with ME!! YOUR GUIDE TO PLAN+PAIR+SHARE.

Important note:  As a hospitality professional I understand that terroir, grapes, know how, and excellence in service are essential to fully understand, enjoy and embrace the wine is food culture as a lifestyle. PLAN+PAIR+SHARE embraces and promotes the Wine is Food culture.

PLAN+PAIR+SHARE experiences are a warm space for each one of you. A place where we can create, or re-create, “an experience” that can help release the feeling/belief of being stressed, busy, bored or simply tired of your everyday activities. WINE IS FOOD promotes the enjoyment of wine as a food product, and the art of pairing wine with food (with the signature WINE IS FOOD “pairing style”). WINE IS FOOD enforces the virtue of “Eating Wine Responsibly.”

This all-inclusive fresh concept brings a fun, yet profound, experience that’ll leave you and your guests asking for more.
