washington, d.c.-based wine, spirits, travel & lifestyle writer / wine educator



Hello! My name is Kelly Magyarics, and I am the President of Kelly Magyarics Wine Consulting. I have been offering wine tastings for groups of all sizes for over five years. Before moving to the Metro DC area, I attended the Windows on the World Wine School in New York City, as well as a series of Master Classes offered by the Sommelier Society of America. In January, 2006, I received the Intermediate Certificate in Wine and Spirits from the renowned Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET), receiving a score of "Pass with Distinction", and I am currently working towards my Advanced Certificate. I have over 10 years experience in the field of training and development, and I love to share my passion for wine!

My philosophy is that wine is something to be paired with good food, good friends and good conversation. It should be approachable, not intimidating; fun, not stressful; and above all--enjoyable! I offer a variety of wine tasting events, and they can also be customized according to your needs. Your guests will enjoy trying different wines, and learn a thing or two along the way!

Contact me today to schedule your own tasting event at (703) 203-WINE, or
