Wine Adventures

We are an independent provider of wine journalism and sommelier services with a fresh Canadian perspective that speaks to an international audience curious about the world. We bring pleasure to the table, a story behind every sip, and a passion for wine and culinary adventures. We are based in Vancouver, Canada.

Why we do it

Wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It is delicious. It is social: It is best with food and served with a healthy portion of family, friends, and those we’d like to know. (Sometimes, it can even ease relations with those we wish we didn’t!) It opens us up to the world around us because wine is a spectacular expression of culture, society, and economy. Wine is geography, geology, climate and climate change, history, and politics. It is architecture, travel, leisure, and food. We love exploring the world through wine. We think you might too.

How we do it

Our loyalty is always with you, the reader. We are the magazine of the future, instilled with an entrepreneurial spirit, and led by a seasoned journalist who doesn’t compromise on old school journalism ethics and professionalism. The primary goal is pleasure for your palate. Exploration for your soul. Learning for your brain. Of course, we can’t neglect stewardship of the amazing world in which we live. We hope to engage, entertain and enlighten you with inspiring visuals, words, and sounds.
