The new website, designed in journalistic form, features detailed information about Karen’s high-demand corporate wine seminars, consulting projects, private wine country tours and publishing initiatives, including her bestselling book, The Wine Bible. In an easy-to-navigate section entitled Wine Style Food, Karen talks directly with her readers about today’s hot wine topics.
