Shades of Rose Wine

Who I am

My name is Sam Wayne and I’m a Certified Wine Specialist. I am a WSET Level 3 graduate and an Oregon Wine Expert certified by the NVWA. I’ve worked in tasting rooms throughout California, Washington, and Oregon. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started a tasting and had one or all of the people at the table tell me they feel like they don’t know anything about wine and feel intimidated by the whole experience. I felt that way too just six years ago.

I started with a basic varietals and regions wine class at a local wine bar and a year later I passed Level One through the Court of Master Sommeliers. My studies continued with WSET Levels 1-3 and I often take classes through a local wine school to keep learning, the quest never ends! 

I am now making it my mission to bridge the gap from knowing only what you like to drink to knowing so much more and make wine tasting the easiest and most enjoyable experience you can have.
