Lovely things others have had to say about Winefulness NZ and Elissa's wine tastings in Wellington. 

Elissa held a corporate wine tasting for about 10 of us at the end of our all-day workshop, and she was fabulous! Her knowledge was extensive and her passion clearly evident as she talked through the different wines she had bought, while encouraging any questions from our group. She was very easy to deal with and happily catered to whatever our needs or budget were. She has a warm bubbly personality which adds to the fun and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to hold a wine tasting for small or large groups. We are looking forward to using her again in the near future!

Elissa ran a wine education class for my students which they really enjoyed! She was very knowledgeable + passionate which I know the students appreciated. Very easy to deal with and worked in well with what we were wanting to achieve. Would recommend her services and would use her again! Looking forward to next working with you.

You can count on coming away from one of Elissa’s wine tasting events having had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Her knowledge and passion for wine is evident through her ability to showcase a large variety of wine. Elissa encourages interaction in the group and is genuinely interested in all opinions, her inclusive style making you feel comfortable to ask questions or openly critique the wine. Above all, Elissa’s enthusiasm and welcoming personality ensures a fun event.
