Jo is passionate about wine and loves making it a fun and interesting experience to share with others.

Her passion for wine started 10 years ago, and since then she has received her WSET Level 3 Certification, Sommelier Certification, Wine of Canada Certification, Sensory Cert and she now has her Cicerone Level 1 (and yes, she couldn’t resist learning about beer after reading so much about wine).

Jo believes that wine is a passion, and she loves everything about it. She knows that it can be something of a serious experience, but Jo believes that wine should be fun, enjoyable, and interesting, and that’s what she likes to share with people. Jo wants to help guide people in understanding wine, aromas, food pairing in a very open and fun way.
