About Me

Finally…Over one more hurdle.

I am proud to say I finished my diploma as of Feb 2017, and am just short of the Italian Wine Expert designation. Alas, I must write the exam yet again. Perhaps the 4th time will be the winner! One step closer…

I’m still doing what I love, selling some great wine, most of it Italian and of the indigenous grape variety. I’m proud to represent these grapes, some of them only recently making a comeback into the world of wine!

When I’m not reading, tasting, blogging or buying wine (or currently learning Italian), I enjoy meeting with friends, evening chats with my husband, movies with my girls, watching football and baseball, making cards, and sitting around a fire in my back yard! I’m currently the manager and wine buyer of a boutique wine store in St. Albert, Alberta called Hicks Fine Wines. I love talking to people and sharing my passion of wine! My company is Joy of Wine, and I hope I exemplify that joy every time I talk to anyone about wine! I want to share my passion of wine, and maybe give some options on choosing wine to drink with your friends, on the patio, or with an opulent 5-course meal.  Whatever the occasion, I’d like to help you create an amazing experience with wine!

Check out the various personal and corporate packages I have to offer under the tabs “Wine Services”, then give me a call or send me an email, to book YOUR private home or Corporate package tasting!  I look forward to sharing an amazing wine experience!
