We are thrilled to have our in-house Master Sommelier, internationally renowned wine expert Catherine Fallis, on hand to assist you directly to create ultimate beverage packages and perfect wine and champagne pairings for Global Gourmet weddings and corporate events.
Catherine is an extraordinary wine aficionado with an exceptionally strong wine tasting palate. As a Master Sommelier (the ultimate credential a wine professional can attain, worldwide) Catherine is a highly informed wine scholar, expert wine judge, consultant, wine reviewer and author. She is highly personable, engaging and has a knack for connecting with people and bringing the sometimes overly complicated world of wine down to an enjoyable level for everyone, taking any potential wine snobbery sometimes associated with fine wine right out of the equation.
She is busy working with our Beverage Services Team to continue to expand the breadth our services, introduce new fine wines and spirits, develop new cutting edge food and wine pairing menus, and create new beverage trends to bring to our clients’ special events.

Catherine is also a professional Champagne sabreuse, using her sword to open Champagne with panache and flair with little more than a flick of her sword. She is available to conduct personal wine tastings, incredibly fun Champagne sabering performances for corporate and special events, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions, and any other gathering that features world-class wine and champagne.
Catherine was recently inducted into Les Dames d’Escoffier International and is a Board Member of The American Institute of Wine & Food. She also personally trained our sales and beverage team to achieve their own Level One Master Sommelier certifications and we are thrilled to have her as part of our Global Gourmet Catering team.
Please contact us if you would like to know more about her wine services or to arrange a consultation for your next event.
