Courtney has been a fixture on the Canadian wine scene since graduating from the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) in 2006.
Courtney began her career the prestigious Fairmont Royal York Hotel, where she was the hotel sommelier and the assistant manager of the 4-Diamond restaurant, Epic. She later moved on to the Art Gallery of Ontario, where she opened the critically acclaimed Frank restaurant and ran the wine program for the AGO.
Courtney has also loaned her considerable expertise to numerous tasting panels for many distinguished restaurants and competitions, and most recently sat on the judging panel, with her sister, Erin, for InterVin.
Courtney lives in Toronto with her family, where she spends her free time sipping Chardonnay and jumping on a massive trampoline she bought "for the kids."
After spending nearly 10 years as a reporter working for some of Canada's biggest news agencies - including CTV, the Canadian Press & 680 News - Erin decided to turn in her microphone for a corkscrew and join her sister in the wine world.
Graduating from the CAPS in 2008, Erin spent several years as the Sommelier and Food & Beverage Manager at the exclusive private members' club, The Badminton & Racquet Club of Toronto before moving on to assistant manager at the renown Canadian restaurant, Canoe.
An accomplished writer, Erin frequently writes about her wine adventures and, with her sister, is a regular contributor to Vines magazine, Tonic magazine and theloop.ca, as well as the special Maclean's publication, Wine in Canada.
Erin lives in Toronto, where she frequently flexes her entertaining muscle, hosting dinner parties and serving copious amounts of wine to her friends and family.
