Annie Edgerton has spent over twenty-five years in the wine business, performing wine appraisals for hundreds of clients, assisting with wine auctions, working in retail, educating groups large and small, wine writing, and finally, combining her effervescent nature as a performer with her wine expertise as a host of various wine programs online and on television. 

She is available to teach private wine classes for groups of 2-200+ (even on zoom!) Please contact her for more information HERE.

Annie just finished her first wine book, a witty and engaging intro-to-wine guide that turns the category on its head, "Drink this Book: A Guide to Uncorking the Secrets of Wine."  She is currently pursuing an agent and publisher. 


Annie spent two years in the rigorous and prestigious Institute of Masters of Wine program. She posted some updates on her blog HERE. Alas, after a narrow miss on her last exam, she was released, but plans on reapplying next year, with much more insight and understanding of the requirements. Keep your fingers crossed for her!

Please follow Annie on Facebook and on Instagram for tips, tricks, wine reviews and more.
