About Me

Heather Mitchell

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. What you’ll find here is discussion about wine in Canada as well as the rest of the wine world.

Here’s a little about me in case you are curious. I’m a wine enthusiast living in Toronto. I spent about six years living in Vancouver prior to moving to the Big Smoke in 2012. As a result I’m really big on BC wines and am now avidly learning about Niagara offerings.

As for the professional side of wine, I spent a couple of years in the vineyard and tasting room at a winery in British Columbia. I also did a stint at Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London, UK.

Certifications:

  • WSET Intermediate
  • Serving it Right

Current Top Canadian Wine Picks:

  • 8th Generation Vineyards Merlot 2008 (BC)
  • Cassini Cellars Syrah (BC)
  • Organized Crime Cabernet Sauvignon (Ontario)
  • Township 7 Vineyards & Winery Sauvignon Blanc (BC)

  1. Ms. Mitchell,
    I am enjoying your perspective on wines. My family was originally from the Hamilton, St. Catherines area. I was just amazed on my last trip, how much the scenery has changed. I remember more cherry and peach orchards and now much to my enjoyment the area has just exploded with wineries. Another area to study. I look forward to your posts.

    • Thanks for the comment! I’ve had a similar experience to yours, returning from 7 years out of province only to find a great mix of boutique wineries. Hope you had a chance to try a couple wines when you were there.
