We are curious wine drinkers. We love learning about wine and are eternal students of wine.  There is so much to learn!  We want to share with you some of our favorite wines and regions.


Lillian Lim

As a wine buyer, sommelier, teacher and consultant, my goal is to create a comfortable, enjoyable, and accessible environment for you to experience and learn about wine.  I strive to find undiscovered gems, looking for wines that are first and foremost delicious, unique in the marketplace, feature a quality level that far exceeds their price point, and have an intriguing story behind them.

My journey began as a wine enthusiast. Tasting some unforgettable wines from Burgundy forever changed my wine world and inspired me to make the transition into a second career from software engineer to wine professional.  I devoted myself to studying different wine regions and grape varieties.  Through my wine studies, I am always looking to taste wines from obscure wine varieties from wine regions of the far corners of the wine world.
