THE POWER OF LEARNING

Our mission at House of Wine is to be perpetual teachers and students of wine science. Essentially we’re addicted to knowledge and passing that “wine wisdom” onto others. Whether conducting tests in the laboratory, researching and implementing new winemaking methodology for a client, or teaching wine professionals and enthusiasts about wine, we believe in the power of learning. And learning is something that we never plan to stop doing.
