Which wine do you love at the moment?
I love the wine that is currently in my glass.


I was the past president and cellar master for the South World Wine Society in Vancouver (now closed), where I met many interesting southern hemisphere wine makers, and tasting lots of interesting wines. My expertise is in southern hemisphere wines, but I am also increasing my knowledge in wines from British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California to give you better advice and insights to the wines from these regions. I love both Old World Wines (esp. France and Italy), as well as New World. Travel and food are also part of my repertoire.
