3:00-4:00 The Business of Wine, Life After the Floor

There can be life in wine after the restaurant floor. As we see, movement from being a sommelier to working for an agency is very typical in the wine industry. This is often not an easy transition, as the roles are not similar. Learn from our panelists about their roles in the greater wine world.

Panelists include: Melissa Stunden (Wines of New Zealand), Adelle Lyon (Andrew Peller Ltd.), Gillian Mainguy (Benjamin Bridge), Lesley Quinn (StellarSomm) and more..

Moderator: Janet Dorozynski, DipWSET, PhD, Writer and National Wine Awards Judge (WineAlign), @winetrackmind

4:00-5:00 The Business of Being a Sommelier

Our best women sommeliers talk about business management practices and how to succeed from a business perspective. Being a great sommelier is not just about pouring fine wines table-side and the excitement of working the floor. Great sommeliers must understand the business of wine.

Panelists Include: Emily Pearce-Bibona (The YORK Club, Toronto), Heather Rankin (Obladee), Nicole Raufeisen (Ostrich Club & Little Oak), Alana Steele (Ostrich Club & Little Oak) and more...
