I've just relocated to the wine country of the Niagara region, Ontario, Canada. The team at Inniskillin winery and Constellation Brands (at Jackson Triggs) are my new colleagues, and it's gonna be a great year! 

As usual, I have some other things on the go, but I'll have to share a drink with you to spill those beans.

I hope our paths cross again soon.

My wine-tasting experience began in the vineyards of France on a summer exchange to Bordeaux in college. After many intervening years of "un-wined" work, I relocated back to beautiful BC in search of more fun and a career change. Two of Canada's most prestigious wineries -- and recipients of Winery of the Year awards -- were wonderful places to begin learning from some of the best in the industry. CedarCreek Estate Winery's convivial family atmosphere put me close to those in the know about the vines and the wines -- on that you have my word -- and I'll always be grateful for the start it gave me on my wine journey. Working at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery was an inspiration and a look at the larger side of life in wine, and I enjoyed hosting tours of the campus and into the stunning underground cellar featured in so many publications about wine in the Okanagan. My wine touring continued at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, the Okanagan's oldest estate winery and a great place to say 'Welcome Home' with a glass of sparkling Brut. There's so much to know about the wine regions, and every vintage is unique, so keep learning. If you're not sure what you're tasting or why you like what you like, or want to educate your palate, I can help you get to know what's in your glass.
