Stress Free Travel
"We could have spent hours combing through articles and reviews on the internet and still wouldn’t have even come close to the quality of what he designed for us. Some things are just better left to the professionals! Frankly, even in the future if we have been to a region before, we still will not “go it alone” without George!"

George's Professionalism made the Entire Process Seamless...
"I have recently installed a wine cellar in my home with the help of George from the Educated Grape. George was wonderful from start to finish! He suggested many helpful hints from the layout and construction of the cellar, as well as selection and purchase of the varieties of wines to be included. George’s knowledge of wine is superior. He is an expert on wine regions, varieties, pairings and trends. George's professionalism helped make the entire process seamless and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to learn more about wine or needing assistance to create and maintain a complete wine cellar."
