About Us

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.

Britney

Marketing & Event Coordinator

When Britney is not getting rosé cheeks from playing in the snowy mountains, she is eating her way around the world. This adventure seeking gal is always up for a hike, especially when the views at the top are pitcher perfect.

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!

Danielle

Event Coordinator

You could say that Danielle is at her peak of happiness when she is on top of a mountain with wine in hand (does wine taste better outside? We think so). This BC, wine loving gal’s favourite pairing is smoked gouda and Cabernet Sauvignon, that’s a grate pairing if you ask us.

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 dog, because it doesn’t count as drinking alone when your dog is there… right?

Hannah

Event Coordinator

Hannah may have a background in theatre, but when it comes to coffee and beer she does not play around. It’s all about the brews and salty snacks for this girl. Give her a complex saison or a crisp lager and a bag of chips and she’ll be one hoppy camper.

Katie

Exhibitor Sales Manager & Events 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.

Liz

Interim Festival Director

Liz is super smart – she’s discovered that you can go to school and just taste wine all day! Liz is equipped with her WSET Level 1 & 2 and often travels for taste – checking out exciting wine and beer regions, and food scenes. She’s currently obsessed with Riesling; always obsessed with Pinot.

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.
