Wine Educator, Wine Educator’s Ltd., Lodi, CA
G.M. “Pooch” Pucilowski is a dynamic and exciting speaker and his enthusiasm for wine is balanced by his 30+ years of teaching and educating both consumers and members of the wine trade. He has learned that most people perceive wine “as too complicated” and the way it is treated by wine snobs — it may seem true. Pooch breaks down the “complications” of wine into easily understandable segments. He knows what is important and what is hype. Any “student” will get the facts they need to know to make an informed decision about how to taste wine and which wines to buy.
Pooch is well known Wine Writer and Wine Educator; for the past 20 years he has been the Chief Judge and Consultant to the California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition. This is one of the largest and most respected judging of “California only” wines in the country. Pooch is a National Speaker that has entertained many private businesses and corporations with his knowledge, insight and energy. His Wine School aboard the Delta King Riverboat in Old Sacramento offers over 9 hours of basic wine education and tasting in a relaxed and informative environment.
