The Thirsty Scholars membership club is for the wine taster who wants to deepen their tasting knowledge of grapes, regions, and producers. It's easy to join! Just decide which membership tier you want to join and decide if you want to purchase the wines too!
This membership site is based on the thousands of hours I spent studying wine and becoming a Master of Wine (it took me 13 years all together), as well as my 17 years experience teaching wine in San Diego!
As a Thirsty Scholar member you get access to my personal tasting compendium of the world of grapes, tasting markers, regional differences and top producers. The site is laid out like a compendium. So when you open each grape compendium there are videos, downloads, all to help you master tasting. Depending on which tier you sign up for, in addition to the online compendium, there are live online Q&A sessions, a live online tasting class and a blind tasting masterclass linking to the wine club wines.

Here's a short sample I put together from different parts of the compendium to give you a taste.
For the Secondary and Tertiary membership tiers, the online wine tasting classes will involve tasting the wine club wines together. I have partnered with Big Hammer Wines to offer you access to my own curated wines that match the online compendium (producers, regions, grapes). These wines will match the grapes being featured for that month for an integrated experience. Wines ship in 6 packs, so once you order you will get 6 (to last you 2 months). Click the Buy button below to pre-pay your order. Wines will ship once we have all orders in due to order minimums for some of these wines.
Thank you for your interest in joining this unique membership! I did the math and I believe I have spent over 18,000 hours in my personal studies and teaching about wine over the past 17 years! I am now sharing my unique perspective and success with you in this club!
With that said, the cost of the course is designed for one person and NOT to be shared with others. Thank you for honoring my proprietary content and extremely hard work, I appreciate that!
Yes! I want to be in the club!
I'm excited to expand my tasting and learn about grape markers, regional differences and producers famous for each grape!
