Our Team

Not All Superheroes Wear Capes...

…some carry wine glasses. Meet the squad that brings Alberta’s biggest wine and food festival to life.

Cathy

Festival Director

Nothing like a little adventure to work up an appetite for this multi-tasking mom. Cathy once snowshoed up a mountain in Switzerland, to indulge in fondue and Swiss white wines. Sign us up!

Hanna

Administrative & Event Assistant

Hanna is all too into crafts such as tapestry weaving and pottery, especially when they involve a glass… or bottle of wine to get the creative juices flowing. When she’s not crafting, she’s hanging out with her dogs, because it doesn’t count as drinking alone when your dog is there… right?

Hayley

Exhibitor Sales & Event Coordinator

Hayley is a winter girl. Thank goodness she lives in Calgary! Her go to drink is a really good Shiraz or Syrah, preferably in front of a fireplace while win(e)ding down from a great day on the hill. Après is the best time of day, especially after snowboarding in the Canadian Rockies! In her free time, she supports the snowboard community through brand activations, and all girls ride events.

Katie

Exhibitor Sales Manager & Event Coordinator

Ironically, as a coordinator for a wine and food Festival, Katie is not really a magician in the kitchen. Her go-to home-cooked meal is a grilled cheese, which she loves to pair with a nice Pinot Noir because, hey, she’s still sophisticated.

Michael

Owner

If Mike could put passion into words, it would be “50 year old Tawny Port & Blue Cheese” – and that’s one combo he will not share. We think he can keep it, although we’d like to taste the Port…

Stacie

Senior Event Coordinator

Stacie recently spent a year living in Australia seeking out kangaroos, the best pizza Down Under and fresh Aussie wines. Back in Calgary when she isn’t patio hopping in the summer, you can catch her lounging by the Bow River with a slice of pie in one hand and vino in the next, daydreaming about getting a pet kangaroo to call her own.
