ABOUT

MEET THE WINE EXPERT

Sommelier led Chicago wine tastings

My wine journey started 22 years ago when I stepped foot onto my first wine region and it quickly became a common thread running through my life. I continued visiting wine regions domestically and internationally learning about the region, the grapes and best of all — the people.
 

I decided to take my field experience to the classroom, completing my WSET Level 2 in Wine (with Distinction) in 2021 and then completed my WSET Level 3 (with Merit) in 2023. With my official certifications, I get to share my love of wine and help others grow their knowledge and appreciation. After learning, studying and visiting wine regions for half of my life, I now lead private wine tastings in Chicago (and virtually), do concierge wine buying, manage personal wine cellars and create ideal wine trips for my clients.
​​
I am fully independent of any company, brand or winery so there is no bias or limits to what I can offer. I am free to make recommendations based on your interest and style.

TESTIMONIALS

My clients and I had a blast with Jane during our virtual wine tasting. Being such an unusual time it was difficult to find fun and interactive ways to entertain. Would highly recommend See Jane Drink Wine! 🎉🥂🍾

Nancy P.

Jane is fun, kind, knowledgable and helpful! I was fortunate enough to attend an in-person wine tasting she was doing at a charity event, and she helped me select customized wine fitting my parameters for my own in-home event. I highly recommend her services for anything wine-related!

Sara F.

We are soooo excited that Jane helped us get our cellar organized! 🙌 Can’t wait to decide what we open first after Baby #2 arrives!

If you love hosting parties and drinking good wine, you have to get to know See Jane Drink Wine. She is warm, talkative, funny, extremely organized and knows more about wine than I ever knew possible. Most guests didn't know each other, Jane was able to get their attention and in a very elegant and sophisticated way she presented wine and wine drinks to my guests. It was a very important event to me and she made it extremely special!

Dorota S.

I had the absolute pleasure of collaborating on an event for a food and wine tasting. Our pairings were spot on, and the wine knowledge is perfect for any tasting event. Most importantly, the fantastic energy and fun with every event makes it a perfect night. Highly recommend.

Aram R.

Jane is the best!!! We had a bday celebration with 15 girls and had Jane host the wine tasting and she was spectacular! We laughed, learned and drank some fabulous wine. So much so, I ordered a case of my favorite wine the next day. Totally recommend her!!!

Lauren P.

Jane was so incredibly helpful. I have a totally new appreciation for my wine “collection” now!! Also it was insane how quickly she did this and what she knew off of the top of her head. 😱🤯

Lindsay M.

It was the best birthday celebration. Jane was so knowledgeable about the rosés she brought. I highly recommend See Jane Drink Wine. I loved all the wine!

Emily B.

I hosted a Women In Wine event Jane led for me, my colleagues and a number of our lady lawyer friends. Jane sourced all of the wine, made the tasting approachable and fun and did a fantastic job. Plus, she’s a gem of a person and a dear friend. Hire her, you will be impressed!!!

Libby H.

Jane's wine tastings are amazing - I've learned so much from her! She'd be a terrific addition to any party, from small gatherings to larger corporate events. I'm so excited that she's offering her expertise to our community!

Corina D.

I’ve had the pleasure of of attending a handful of events hosted by Jane and she is the best. From large events, to formal events, to small casual groups - she can handle it all. Her ability to command a room, while keeping things fun and educational, is unmatched.
I’ve also had the pleasure of attending two wine trips that she planned and they were both perfect. She picked the most interesting and picturesque small-production wineries for us to visit. We would have never found these places on our own. She handled and planned every detail for a perfect concierge experience.

Paula H.

Went on a trip to Santa Barbara County that Jane organized and led and had so much fun. We went to four different wineries, which were each unique and memorable for different reasons. She is knowledgeable, connected and a blast to hang out with. Can't wait till the next trip!

Kristen N.

Our wine tasting experience with Jane was amazing!! We had so much fun and also learned a lot! She introduced us to many new wine brands and some have been added to our “favorites” list. It was a great way to continue the celebrations for my mom’s 60th! We highly recommend having her at your next birthday party, corporate event, etc. We know we’ll be giving her a call the next time we want to host another wine tasting!

Megan P.

What a treat to have Jane share her knowledge and wonderful wine selection at a wine tasting we hosted in our home. Everyone left having enjoyed delicious wine, all while learning numerous practical tips for choosing wines. Jane has also assisted us with building up our wine cellar with many personalized recommendations. It's so wonderful to collaborate with Jane on all things wine!

Sarah Y.

Jane was an amazing sommelier! I hired her to do a wine tasting for my wife’s surprise birthday party based on a friend’s recommendation. From the moment I reached out, she provided tons of insight and guidance. She was very responsive and was flexible even when the group sized ended up being larger than anticipated. She chose some amazing wines and curated and an amazing experience for everyone. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend Jane!

Jeremy D.

If I could give Jane 10 stars I would! Jane did a Women in Wine tasting for about 10 women and it was fantastic. She was so easy to work with and communicative in the months leading up to the tasting, and flexible and creative to ensure we had what we needed for a successful evening. The tasting itself was so much fun and we all learned so much! Would highly recommend!

Ilana R.

Jane was nothing but phenomenal in everything she did for my wife's surprise birthday. From the very beginning Jane was responsive, detail orientated and made the birthday celebrations everything my wife dreamed of. I would highly recommend Jane for any type of event you may have. Thanks again Jane for all your work!

David H.

All the fun with none of the boring stuff. Jane is knowledgeable, funny and quick witted. She’ll keep the party entertained, informed and moving along. I’ve been to at least 3 of her wine tasting and keep coming back for more!

Marissa F.

I learned so much about great wines from Jane! I will now be able to choose my wine based on what I learned and finally have a well stocked wine cabinet. Jane was a professional yet fun and engaging sommelier. It was the best girls night event ever! The whole experience was a true joy.

Meg C.

Jane is equally lovely and knowledgeable about wines. She hosted a wine tasting for a few friends all with different tastes and somehow shared a line up of wines that we all enjoyed and we all had a blast learning and sipping together. I would highly recommend her for any of your wine needs and hope to work with her again soon.

Kara H.

Jane is the best! I feel more empowered to make knowledgeable decisions in the wine aisle after learning from Jane. I have been to many, and now hosted, events with Jane and she is warm, friendly, and thoughtful. Jane makes wine approachable and fun. You won’t regret having her at your next girls’ night, book club, or large group event! Jane does it all with style, poise & expertise!

Julie F.

Where do I begin!? Jane has taught me so much about wine…what to look for, where to shop, regions, she introduced me to wines that I have fallen in love with and return to over and over again. I have even had the luxury of going on one of her See Jane trips to Willamette. She planned everything to perfection. I highly recommend you have her plan your next trip. If that’s not possible, just have her bring the wine to you! She’s the best

Robin F.

Jane is the best! I have been lucky to learn about wine from her in a few different settings (private event, bridal shower, paired with a chef demo) and each have been very education, informative and fun! Jane is great to work with - she finds our your preferences, regions and varietals of interest and price point to curate the perfect tasting. I highly recommend working with Jane to host an event or add a fun element to any evening!

Sara B.

Learning about wine with Jane has been completely enlightening! As a wine lover, I like trying new regions and grapes and Jane has helped me do just that! She has given me insight on different kinds of wines based on what I like and always recommends things for me to buy within my price range. Not only is she knowledgeable on the topic she is a complete ball to hang with during tastings and I would recommend her for any gathering to make it a success and a night to remember (or not depending how much wine you drink!!;) Two thumbs up for Jane!
