When you follow your passion it's always an adventure. My personal adventure with wine goes way back; in fact, one of my earliest memories is of a glass of pink champagne. The colour and sparkling bubbles captivated my imagination.
Over the years I‘ve had the great fortune to travel the world, exploring food and wine. This invaluable experience introduced me to the art of tasting wine as well as to the culture surrounding wine.
I’m a Certified Sommelier through both the Court of Master Sommeliers and the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS); a graduate of the WSET Diploma Program as well as a Certified WSET Class Educator; and I hold the Professional Fromager Certificate. I’m also Director of Education for CAPS. As well as teaching the WSET curriculum, I teach in the CAPS Sommelier Program and am a Professor at the Centre for Food, Durham College Ontario.
I’m also a student of wine and am currently working towards my Masters of Wine designation.
Please join me as we swirl, sip and savour the world of wine together.
