Mentoring with Tanya
Tanya has been working in the wine industry; in restaurants, retail, and education for more than two decades. She has been teaching about wine since 2004. Her love of classical wines, passion for history, nature, and gastronomy inspires her educational approach.
Mentoring with Alberto
Alberto’s passion for wine started when he lived in Tuscany as a student, where he fell in love with Chianti and rustic Italian food. Bitten by the wine bug, he read all the wine books he could get his hands on and then pursued a formal wine education in San Francisco and Seattle.
Mentoring with Nakenge
As a sommelier and wine director, NaKenge has worked at lauded PNW restaurants such as Canlis and Goldfinch Cafe at the Four Seasons Hotel. In his career as a winemaker, NaKenge was Washington State’s first Black winemaker. Over the years NaKenge has made wine for Washington's most iconic producers -- including Efeste, Delille, Leonetti, Corliss and Rasa Vineyards. He has recently launched his own label, Parousia Cellar, whose first vintage will be released into the world in 2022.
