“Scott’s fabulous wine pairing seminar made our team Christmas party a huge success! He took us on a virtual tour of the world’s top wine-growing regions with his vast knowledge and expertise. We sipped and sampled and had a wonderful time. Scott is a delight and makes everyone feel comfortable with his warm, relaxed style. Regardless of the setting, he’ll make your event one that’s not to be missed!”
Vice President, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
“Our team has used Scott to conduct several food and wine tasting events for our clients. He is great in front of a crowd, and his passion for food and wine comes through. He is very creative and is always able to come up with topics or themes that would please a diverse group. Our clients talk about his wine and recipe suggestions for months after these events, and ask us when we will be hosting another one.”

“Scott made a big impression on our group. I personally learned so much and want to learn more! We can also say that his presentation fit its articulated purpose well. I was called upon recently to pick out a white wine for the table at a business dinner. I ordered with great confidence and the table’s overwhelmingly positive response was a testament to Scott’s talent.”
CIO, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama
“Scott makes learning about wine varietals and pairings a fun, non-intimidating experience. His unique “relaxed expert” style is sure to please whether you are planning an intimate wine tasting in your home or a large corporate function with your best clients.”
National Christian Foundation/Alabama
“I don’t know anything about wine, except that some taste better than others. I have been to numerous wine tastings, but no one has ever explained the different types and pairing strategies in such a fun and entertaining way as Scott. His presentation was a big hit with all of our guests.”
“Scott was an integral part of our annual Christmas party. In addition to his wine and food pairing session, Scott also created the evening’s menu. The party was a blast. We will certainly partner with him again in the future.”

“My sales team thoroughly enjoyed Scott’s No-Snobbery Wine Education seminar and tasting. They were so pleased to be in a comfortable setting where they could learn about wine and food pairing strategies while breaking bread with their colleagues. Scott has a real gift for sharing his knowledge in such an entertaining way.”
Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo Commercial Real Estate
“Scott has a fantastic grasp of the worlds of wine and beer that compliments his deep culinary knowledge. Scott’s fluency with historical and cultural facts about growing regions, styles, and producers allows him to connect well with a knowledgeable audience, or with those who simply want to learn a little about all of the wonderful things they could be enjoying alongside their food.”
No-Snobbery Wine Education is what Jones Is Thirsty does, but we also exist to help fight true thirst.
That’s why we’ve made Neverthirst our charitable partner.
Neverthirst’s mission is simple: Provide clean and living water to the poor through the local church. But their aim is much higher. Neverthirst seeks to change the lives of people on both sides of this transaction. Neverthirst currently has projects in India, Central African Republic, Cambodia and Sudan.
Our goal? Build a well for an entire Cambodian village, just like the one pictured on the right.
For this project, two lucky donors win a Thirsty tasting for 6, including wine (each a $1,000 value).
Jones is supporting these local charities this year!
Jones Is Thirsty will auction off a private tasting for 6 at each of these 2015 events.
