Testimonial from Wine Label.org

We really enjoyed Professor Vine, he really knew wine, and what's more had composed songs with wine lyrics! What really impressed me is that his Zinfandel song not only included the latest DNA research about its origins, but also had a rhyme for its Croatian parent!

Testimonial from an Event Producer

"I hired Professor Vine to warm up the crowd for a nationally-known comedian, Johnny Steele, at the 2nd annual Wine County Comedy Festival. The event was part of the Olive Festival in Sonoma, CA and George crafted a hilarious lecture that got the whole crowd primed. We'll definitely use the multi-talented George again and again!"

Testimonial from a Hospitality Manager

George Webber has astounded many of my visitors with his edutainment series. From Professor Vine to Luigi, I consistently had great feedback from guests, both for the chuckles and the level of wine knowledge imparted. Stumping the Professor was quite difficult to do. Quite a memorable experience.

Testimonial from a Wine Writer
Many wineries in Sonoma County have discovered a unique way to market their wines: they hire performance actor George Webber, also known as Professor Vine, who teaches visitors about wine in an entertaining way. Webber's act is the only one of its kind in the wine business.
