Most memorable wine?
Too many to pick just one. The memorable wines were the ones had while on vacation with my husband.

What was your first wine?
Does a wine cooler count? :)

What’s your most unusual wine experience?
Barrel tastings at Bourrassa Winery (Napa). Buying a 1982 Chianti from a vineyard (or from a shed that was near a vineyard) in Tuscany.

Which wine do you love at the moment?
Pinot Gris from Oregon and B.C. Rieslings from Mosel. Pinot Noir from Oregon. Merlot from B.C. Cote du Rhone and Tempranillo.


I've just completed the Sommelier Program at Algonquin College in Ottawa. My husband and I have been most lucky to travel to California, Germany, France, Italy, Greece and Spain to taste some wonderful wines. We love spending time with our friends and family, especially over a few glasses (bottles) of wine and great food.
