We are excited to announce that we will be featured in a monthly column in LA Weekly. Our first article was published in December 2017. Please take a moment to read it here.


Thanks to the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce for featuring Five Senses Tastings. We're excited to be offering an entirely new and exciting option for the Holiday season... and time is ticking, folks, so book a music, wine, cheese, and chocolate tasting for your employees, special clients, friends and family today!


We had SO much fun chatting with the radiant Elayne Fluker of #SupportIsSexy Podcast. On this episode, we discussed heeding the signs when a new business idea may be brewing, knowing when to take the leap and turn your side hustle into your full-time hustle, how to create your own luck when that opportunity comes, how to confront rejection and still be good to yourself, ways to network and make authentic connections, why learning that something doesn’t work or go your way doesn’t mean that you’ve failed, why, as women, it’s our duty to stand up for ourselves, how being a bone marrow donor changed Kala's life. Listen to the full episode here.


We were so excited to chat with Steph and Val from Wine-Two-Five, one of our very favorite podcasts. The episode about Five Senses Tastings aired on July 6, 2017. We talk about how we met on Twitter, how Founder Kala Maxym came to wine many years ago while on official assignment with the federal government, what a music tasting is, and how being a bone marrow donor is still the single most important thing that Kala has ever done with her life. Please enjoy this wonderful episode!

What an honor and a privilege to be on Business Rockstars chatting about Five Senses Tastings and my path to entrepreneurship. When I was considering leaving my full-time job to begin working full-time for Five Senses Tastings, my mom once said to me, "I know you're scared, but staying where you are is scarier." Those words have stuck with me since. Thank you for watching!


We are so grateful to VoyageLA for their feature on Five Senses Tastings... and it made the Tuesday after Memorial Day just that little bit more palatable ;) We loved their challenging and thoughtful questions and so appreciate the opportunity to share our story with our friends and fans in Los Angeles!

A huge THANK YOU to Erika Beach of With Love, Paper, and Wine for this delightful article on our music tasting in Temecula at Europa Village Winery. We hosted two back-to-back events to celebrate Valentine's Day! The "International Languages of Love" featured California wines made from grapes originating in Spain (Bolero Cellars), Italy (Vienza), and France (C'est la vie) paired with food prepared especially for the event by Europa's own Chef Dean. Musicians included violinist Victoria Bietz, pianist Daniel Bailey, and guitarist Jeff Pekarek. CEO and soprano Kala Maxym also sang a few selections.

We were overjoyed with our feature on the Entrepreneur Podcast Network!
