About Jonny

I am also known as the Wine Wrangler and I am a father, wine lover, certified Sommelier and WSET Diploma holder (Associate member of the Institute of Wines and Spirits) experiencing the world of wine.

I am originally from the UK, and lived in London. I now make Vancouver BC, Canada my home. I have worked in the restaurant business as a sommelier and manager, and have been a buyer for a leading Vancouver speciality wine, craft beer and spirit retailer.

I grew up visiting my grandparents in Panzano-in-Chianti in Tuscany where they grew vines on a beautiful property.
They were also at the forefront of planting vines and making wine in Sussex in the 1950's as part of the very early days of the English wine renaissance, so a love of wine is in the blood!
