Meet Dianne ...

I hold my diploma with the International Sommelier Guild and am offering a variety of Sommelier and wine related services in Vancouver and the Okanagan Valley.

Many sommeliers work for restaurants or for wine importers. However, I believe the services of a sommelier can be delivered to a wider audience. My goal is to provide a personalized consultation service in a variety of different settings. These offerings are outlined in this website under the heading ‘Services’.

What I love about wine is that it is a never ending journey of pleasure, intrigue and education. This journey can take you all over the world which is a perfect match for my second love, travel! I have visited many of the prominent wine regions of the world. This personal experience, allows me to educate and make wine fun for everyone by giving a personal connection. My wine career began as a cellar hand at Kim Crawford Winery in New Zealand and have since added to my resume work experiences at Mission Hill Family Estates in British Columbia, Flechas de los Andes in Argentina and as a wine tour guide/educator with Experience Wine Tours in Kelowna.
