We are Sommeliers and True Wine Culture Consultants:  taste it, share it, live it!

Our philosophy centers around a wine culture aesthetic where wine gently glitters from the background and becomes part of a complete social experience, distinct for each individual.

GUY is a long term resident of San Diego.  He spent twelve years in the banking and investment industry before developing a passion for wine. After one year of studying wine independently and becoming a Sommelier, Eric accepted a position at a local wine retailer eventually earning the title of General Manager. GUY leads the West Coast of Protocol Wine Studio and authentically embodies the philosophy of true wine culture: taste it, share it, live it.

Tina has over fifteen years experience in the food and wine industry, first as pastry chef and owner of a vegan wedding cake company. After a life-altering wine-centric meal she decided the wine road was for her and chose the path into the Court of Master Sommeliers to become Certified Sommelier. She most recently was wine buyer and manager for a San Diego wine retailer and is continuing her education through the Master of Wine program. Tina moves about the country with half time spent in Virginia where she nurtures the East Coast clientele of Protocol Wine Studio.

    I believe we met you at Ankida Ridge at the Christmas Party.
    I really enjoyed your description of the Pinot Noir and was there when you gave Christine the ornament. She really is a special lady and look forward to much future success for their vineyard.
