I share media content, conduct tastings, travel and mentor peers about wine. I love to attend events, taste, find the good stuff, take pictures and tell stories about the styles that seduce and the regions that are emerging. There is always something to learn. Training In January 2018 I walked the stage at Guildhall in London, UK and received my WSET Diploma from Steven Spurrier. In April 2018, I completed the Canadian Wine Scholar. In October 2019 I completed Certified Specialist of Wine, part of the Society of wine educators in Napa. Do you have a course that I should consider? International Travel In June 2018, I traveled to Lisbon for the second time to explore the Lisboa CVR. In 2019 its off to France, Spain, Hungary, Austria and Slovakia! In 2020...Covid 19 has us pivoting and taking in local! Events Wine Events are a great way to learn about wine. In 2018, I attended the Vancouver International Wine Festival, Taste Washington, Victoria International Wine Festival, Cheese & Meat, TopDrop, Lieutenant Governor Awards for BC Wine, the Wine Media Conference in Walla Walla, WA, and the Okanagan Wine Festival at the West Jet Hangar. In 2019, I attended Taste Washington, Vancouver International Wine Festival, BC Pinot Noir Festival, The Gargiste North and looking forward to upcoming RAW and Biodyvin.
