Amusée provided the best party I ever had! Leslee made everything so easy. The food was wonderful, the presentation outstanding and the wine- fantastic. Leslee is knowledgeable and professional. She moves with ease in a crowd and keeps the party going.
Having Amusee participate in our Rotary TasteWest fundraiser added an element of fun and education to the event. While discussing wines served at the event, Leslee played a, “Price is Right” wine game where guests were able to test their wine price knowledge by tasting various wines and winning wine prizes. This was not only memorable for our guests, but also contributed to our fundraising effort as a revenue generating activity. Our guests are still talking about the fun evening and we look forward to having Amusee participate with us again next year.
Leslee helped me plan an intimate dinner party and selected the wines to accompany each course. Leslee introduced the wines that we were drinking by course and gave us a “mini-class” on the grapes and vineyards that they were made from. She even arranged for chef prepared appetizers AND servers to round out the meal and the party, which allowed for me to relax and enjoy my guests! Leslee is a joy and fun to have around…she is serious about wine…but doesn’t treat wine so seriously as many sommeliers do…
We have tried a few wine experts at our customer appreciation events, and we can say that Leslee is truly a professional! Her knowledge of wine, coupled with her enthusiasm creates an event that your guests will remember for a long time!
Wow!!!!! is all I can say. With the help of Leslee and Amusée, we pulled off a surprise birthday/wine tasting party for my wife, Jan and she was completely surprised! THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Leslee’s knowledge of the wines and the cheeses that she paired were outstanding, as well as her patience with putting up with our group. We have travelled, taken vacations together and always have fun together. All of the group’s comments were so positive on her presentation. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon at one of Leslee’s classes!
We have done many events with Leslee at our restaurants including: wine dinners, wine tastings, and staff trainings. I am continually impressed with her vast wine knowledge and utmost ability to make wine accessible and fun to both new and experienced wine lovers.
I first met Leslee at a “Bubbles Class” at Cooks of Crocus on Grand Avenue. After finding her very personable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about wine, I invited her over to host a wine tasting at my condo with my very close friends. Leslee converted the non-wine lovers into appreciating a glass of wine and wine lovers to understand their palate. I am proud to call Leslee my personal wine Sommelier, mentor, and friend. I hope you get to experience Leslee’s personality and love for wine.
Leslee brings life, laughter and a refreshing delivery to the art and world of wine. I have the pleasure of working with her as a contributor on many editorial levels including both on and offline ventures. She is a consumate professional with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in her field. She has just begun tapping into her talents – and I am excited to see what the future holds.
I can’t say enough about Leslee and Amusée. My wife and I, and another couple, attended a class that she taught with Mike Shannon at Cooks of Crocus Hill – ‘The Best of the Best Pairings’. We had an absolute blast. Leslee’s knowledge about wine is amazing, and we loved the non-stuffy way that she shared that knowledge. You can’t help but learn from her and have a lot of fun in the process. We’ve been to other wine classes, but this is the first where we were able to totally apply what we learned at home to better understand and appreciate the wines we drink and better distinguish those we do and don’t like and why. If you want to learn about wine in a way that you can actually apply, and laugh a lot in the process, I would highly recommend Leslee and Amusée.
Leslee is the most approachable sommelier we have ever met. She is a walking wine library yet still makes the whole wine experience very fun, accessible and interesting. She has helped us craft our wines, tweak our brand, and develop a commercial strategy. There isn’t one aspect of the wine industry that Leslee doesn’t tackle and excel at. Cheers to our fabulous friend Leslee!
Leslee is a sexy, fun, entertaining expert on everything grape-related, and she regularly makes WINE sexy, fun, and entertaining for us in our classes and private events at Cooks of Crocus Hill.
Leslee Miller and Amusée turned our annual fundraising dinner into a magical evening. Open Arms is all about food, but Leslee’s extraordinary talents as a sommelier and the wines that she served at our dinner transformed our benefit into an event. Guests raved about her wine selections and thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. Amusée makes a perfect pairing for any event.
