Favourite Wine Memory:
Drinking a $20 Bolgheri with my wife at an old school Italiano Trattoria the day I got my first test score back from my WSET Level 2 Exam, I was so stoked to find out my results and had my first thought about what it would be like to leave restaurants for good to pursue a career in the Wine Industry…. A fond memory and still one of the best bottles of wine I’ve had to date!

Favourite Grape:
A truly impossible question to answer as this always changes and is ever-evolving. As of right now its a tie between Pinot Noir, Sangiovese & Syrah for Red and Chardonnay hands down for White.

Favourite Spirit:
Whiskey (Single Malt Scotch & Bourbon) & Gin
