Episode Notes

This week’s guest is a trove of knowledge about wines. We have a great chat about wine and food and how lovely those two things are together. I’m sure most of you listening agree.

A pilot by profession, Ryan Sullivan always has had a love of wines. So much so he decided to attend a Sommeliers program and become part of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.

Pilots are known for their attention to detail and love of travel and adventure, a quality I’m sure equally shared with sommeliers.

I could have spoken to Ryan for hours about wine and food. I hope you’ll enjoy our chat.

A disclaimer, Ryan and I recollect and each tell stories of our first wine experiences. We are in no way advocating for under age drinking. Some would say wine is a sacred experience and experienced differently all over the world in different cultures. In more European culture leaning households, in the 80’s & 90’s it was not uncommon for young teens to enjoy a small glass with parents and family while enjoying dinner. Of course now the perspective is different and we know more about alcohol so please always enjoy responsibly and legally. And take our early wine memories with a grain of salt and a light hearted sip.

Cheers!
