About Jessica

I first fell in love with wine while studying the Social History of Alcohol, with wine writer Rod Philips, at Carleton in Ottawa. I was intrigued by the role wine plays in culture, and how it shapes our experience of family, food, and the land we live on.
I am decidedly not a wine snob and work hard to make my reviews accessible and fun!
I'm also participating in the Great Canadian Wine Challenge--buying and opening nothing but Canadian wines for an entire year. So most of my reviews right now will be home-grown but I'll soon be branching out at the end of the Challenge.
