I decided on a Pour Favor experience because I wanted to present something that was unique and highly personal. It gave us the opportunity to bond with our clients over something other than work and have more than a couple of words with each other over canapes. And working with you was simple! I did not have to do anything other than invite guests. I did not have to coordinate a venue, menu, beverages, etc. I could focus on my guests. You did it all. THANK YOU!

Pour Favor is a pleasure to work with, pairing broad expertise in wine with excellent people skills to deliver a great all-around experience. They designed and facilitated a wine tasting event for my team of 100 people, provided wine and a tasting experience that allowed people to self-select the level of detail they got into in the wine. My team ranges from wine newbies to a couple of very seasoned connoisseurs, so this was perfect. Pour Favor makes designing an event easy and fun, and makes wine tasting approachable and engaging. Highly recommended.

Working with Pour Favor was a breeze. They provided amazing educational information, while continuing a conversation and engaging our audience. The wines were well-picked and everyone thought the event was fantastic. A must.

I had a two-fold objective when I engaged Pour Favor, and Rebecca provided a seamless plan of action in an incredibly thoughtful, concise and creative fashion. I needed to organize our wine program and also host an education/tasting series for my staff. After our initial consultation, Rebecca re-organized our wine lists into an easy format for our clients to choose from. Then, Rebecca’s engaging and infectious enthusiasm during the wine workshops guided us all through a comprehensive education that left us all knowing how to navigate our company's wine list - and wine as a whole. My staff was so appreciative of her unassuming and fun approach and I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend not only her consultative services, but Pour Favor's educational tastings as well.

Wow! Once again you helped make an event extra special with your enthusiasm and love of wines. Your truly unique way of getting people to be interested in and remember the wines is fantastic. And you delivered an outstanding networking event that I was able to enjoy, too! We plan to book with you again within the year!

Pour Favor, you outdid yourself last night! Your passion for wine and your knowledge is second to none. Everyone was talking about how great the wine was – and how impressed they were with the wine selections. I am so thankful to you for all your hard work – I loved working with you; you are so on the ball! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!
Chef Robert Harris, Season to Taste Catering
Season To Taste recently catered an event for one of our corporate clients in downtown Boston. As it turns out our client also hired Pour Favor to provide a wine tasting experience. We were so impressed with their extraordinary service, wine knowledge and all around energy, that we now mention Pour Favor to all of our clients. We highly recommend hiring Pour Favor for your next corporate event, house party or open house. Nothing gets the conversation going like a nice bottle of wine and Pour Favor is more than capable of providing an educational yet incredibly fun experience.
Adam Bissonnette, Tufts University Office of Alumni Relations
Working with Pour Favor is an absolute pleasure. Their professionalism and knowledge of wine is amazing. And they will work with you to create a program that will work for your event. We have used Pour Favor for several years now to host a wine tasting at an event we run for young alumni. Feedback has never been anything but good - from the wine tasting itself to the atmosphere it creates at the event. I look forward to working with the Pour Favor team every year!
Eric Vogt, Harvard University
Ms. Schimmoeller, your passion for the West Coast Wines you select for our seminar every year comes through loud and clear as you manage to calm the crowd and actually teach our Seniors some profound lessons about food and wine pairing. Thank you very much! It is always a fabulous evening and a wonderful learning experience.
Caitlin Felsman, Somerville, MA
I was looking for the perfect birthday gift for my husband who has always loved Port wine. Rather than trying to buy the perfect bottle, or a book that would sit on our shelf, I contacted Pour Favor. They planned a perfect surprise tasting with a small group of our closest friends complete with 4 wines and food pairings. My husband is still raving about the experience, and our friends (many of whom knew nothing about Port going in) had a fabulous time.
Rachel Goldman, Chef/Owner D’Lish Intimate Catering
D’Lish thrives on hip and all around fabulous staff – I am THRILLED to have the Rebecca(h)'s as Sommeliers and to work with them on high-end dinner parties. They are motivated, energetic, very talented and all around wonderful! I look forward to hiring Pour Favor again and again and would highly recommend Pour Favor to anyone looking for an amazing experience.
