Follow along with Sasha from Italian specialist importer Bonvida as she explains how truly fine Chardonnay is crafted in Italy, what a versatile and food-friendly, if often overlooked, grape Barbera is, and how luscious and inviting modern Barolo can be in the hands of a master winemaker.
The Pack contains 3 exceptional wines, extensive notes on the winery, its history and the wines, as well as a link to an online video presented by Sasha.
An experienced wine business pro, Sasha’s depth of knowledge comes from years of learning, traveling, working, eating, and drinking. Slinging plates during her university years, she discovered her love of wine. That love became a career that has seen her in a variety of roles—Sommelier, educator, sales and imports, restaurant management, and marketing.
Opportunities for formal wine education in Canada were limited at the start of her career. Determined to learn more, Sasha attended every tasting, seminar, trade event, and any other learning opportunity she came across. In 2002, a husband, two boys, six cities later, she finally had the opportunity to pursue her ISG Sommelier Certification, the rigorous professional accreditation she had wanted for years. Over the years Sasha has amassed a trove of wine books, wine courses, and no shortage of stamps on her passport in pursuit of terroir, experience, and knowledge. A devoted virtuoso of the art of fermentation, she continues to make a living-learning, sharing, drinking and talking about wine. A long, and flavourful road, rich with experience, good wine, good food, and fantastic people.
