Caroline Conner, Founder

Caroline is a wine teacher, youtuber, and entrepreneur otherwise known as Wine Dine Caroline!

She ran wine tastings for tourists in her adopted city ofLyon, before turning to virtual tastings in March 2020. Her tastings have been mentioned in the NYT and Business Insider.

She holds a BA in Archaeology & Anthropology from the University of Oxford, a cuisine and patisserie diploma from Le Cordon Bleu, and most importantly, a Wine & Spirits Education Trust level 4 Diploma. She is currently studying to become a Master of Wine.

Nancy Koziol, Owner

Nancy is an internationally-certified wine expert, author and journalist who loves teaching people the stuff they actually need to know about wine in a fun, interactive way.

She launched an in-home tasting business, couch + cork, in May 2019 and was one of the first wine educators to pivot to virtual when the pandemic struck. She and Caroline quickly turned into a support system, trading leads in Europe and the UK to avoid either having to lead tastings at weird times. In October, 2022, she acquired CVWT from Caroline.

Nancy has a background in labor and employment law which, let's be honest, drove her to wine. She is a Brooklynite turned Vermonter who lives with her husband, dogs, cat and a lot of wine.
