Master of Ceremonies

Anu Karwa burst onto the scene as the fresh, young face of wine with a mission to make wine a fun and easy part of everyday living.

She has been called a no-nonsense walking 411 for a new generation of female wine drinkers and home entertainers since she launched Swirl Events, the in-home and corporate wine tasting events company with a fresh, hip spin. Anu created Swirl Events to combine her passion for wine and bringing her friends together for memorable evenings.

Catch Anu on her recurring appearances on Martha Stewart Radio and Cosmo radio, where she serves as a resident wine expert, as well as online through her column on, articles in the Chicago Sun Times, and through her blog, SwirlSavvy.

Anu is an accredited sommelier and holds an MBA from Columbia Business School.
