"We have had the pleasure of working with Paul for many years. He is a great sommelier and brings tremendous enthusiasm and knowledge to his wine tastings. He breathes life into his subject with refreshing style. His events are fun and delicious."

Johanne Killeen (Al Forno Restuarant, Providence)


"As a sommelier, Paul shared his knowledge about Italian wines in a way that was genuinely thoughtful and completely unpretentious. In most cases, the term "wine expert" translates as "insufferable bore." Not so with Paul. He knows what he's talking about, and he's a terrific, engaging guy to boot."

David Lynch (General Manager, Babbo Restaurant)


We recently had Paul over to our home to do a wine tasting for a family birthday celebration. The night was a tremendous success! We had a great time tasting a variety of wines and learning about the various regions that they originated from. In addition Paul selected some meats and cheeses that were a perfect accompaniment to the wine. Everyone had a wonderful time in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We would definitely do it again!

"I am a wine newbie and I really enjoy learning about and tasting wines. Paul's tasting taught me more than I could have imagined about Italian wines, and also gave me great tips on where to buy them. The food was so perfectly matched with each wine. He was funny and my friends really enjoyed meeting him. I am already planning my next wine tasting party!"

Patricia Valentine (Private Home Tasting)


We recently hired Mr. Lang to do a wine tasting at my company offices for some prospective clients we wanted to impress. Mr. Lang exceeded our expectations. He brought a knowledge of Italian wine that was thorough and entertaining. Being a bit of an oenophile myself I was even more impressed by the clarity with which Paul was able to make the experience of tasting wines enhanced by his charm and wide knowledge. I think Mr. Lang is a pleasure to do business with and a boon to any company event. We look forward to working with him in the future.
