I am a WSET Diploma Graduate, Certified Sommelier, Educator and Wine Buyer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I work for an incredibly supportive business woman, Ms. Tina Jones, the owner and CEO of Banville & Jones Wine Co. It is her commitment to excellence and education that has afforded me the opportunity to study, travel and indulge my passion for the world of wine. It is, in particular, my time spent at her family’s winery in Chianti Classico that has altered the course of my life so significantly. My time at Tolaini has blessed me with lifelong friendships, incomparable experiences and an incurable passion for the people, wines and culture of Italy.
