Morgan brings guests full circle, from flavor profiles to her vast surrounding knowledge in everything from wine myths to etiquette. The Mistress of Citronelle’s collection of over 8,000 wines, there is no better teacher than Kathy Morgan to offer insights into all aspects of the beverage—for both oenophiles and novices alike.
