Like wine but don’t know how to describe it? Intimidated by Whisky? Can’t tell the difference between a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Syrah but want to? You’re not alone! The Wee Tipple, LLC is here to make wine and whisky accessible and enjoyable to those who like to drink but want to know more about what it is they are drinking.

Julia knows her stuff and makes learning enjoyable! I recommend any of her classes to those interested in expanding their knowledge of spirits and/or wine.

We joined one of Julia’s Whiskey tasting group classes with a sub-group of 5 friends, in separate locations. It was a fun thing that we could do “together” without being in the same room. Very informative & a fun social interaction for our personal group within the context of a larger group! Highly recommend!

From New York to New Zealand, Julia has lived and worked around the world, first falling in love with wine on Waiheke Island, then with the “Water of Life” when revisiting The Emerald Isle. While pursuing education and garnering accreditations from esteemed certifying bodies such as The Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and The Whisky Ambassador, LTD, Julia’s approach to teaching is easy to understand, and her passion for these delicious drinks makes for a fun time, indeed!
