Uncorked Sunriver Style is a two-day wine event featuring Oregon wineries, chocolates, cheeses, comedy show, live music & more!
Laurie Forster, aka The Standup Sommelier, TV personality and comedian, will deliver the edgy, off-beat show “Something to Wine About,” where wine meets punchline.
Using her down-to-earth approach to “wine education,” she peels back the labels of a few of her favorite wines while exposing secrets of the wine industry and why she thinks it’s so darned funny!
Laurie’s comedy show will take place Saturday afternoon.
Laurie will also present an educational wine class based on her popular DVD, “Weird Science: Food & Wine Reactions,” on Saturday.
Are you confused about what wine to pair with what dishes? Do you wish you had an easy way to create a fun at-home wine tasting event for your friends and family? Laurie will reveal the secrets of pairing the correct wine and foods.

As a new software sales executive, Laurie had to entertain clients, but embarrassed that she didn’t know how to choose a good wine to go with the meal, she vowed to make a change. She began learning about wine, took wine classes, attended wine dinners and read as much as she could. She eventually began leading her own wine tastings and realized she really enjoyed teaching other people about wine. Laurie took a leap by quitting her job and began to create unique wine events as “The Wine Coach.”
