Peter & Holly Smith are specialists in wine, travel and hospitality and own the world’s leading wine travel company, Avalon Wine Tours. It was at the suggestion of their clients that they start a wine education series to demystify the secrets of wine and the pretentiousness that often accompanies it. They founded the OC Wine School in 2012 with the aim to educate the public as well as professional wine staff in all aspects of wine including tasting, presentation, food-pairing and storage. The OC Wine School’s approach can be as relaxed or formal as the client demands with their motto being “edutainment”, learn and have fun!
