Meet The Wine Sisters

The Wine Sisters was founded in 2011 by sister sommeliers (yep, they’re really sisters) Erin and Courtney Henderson, and has become Toronto’s leading sommelier services and wine events company.

With Erin now acting as Chief Somm and Party Planner, our team has grown to include an amazing group of passionate, savvy, professional “sister” sommeliers who have all earned their advanced wine and sommelier certifications from various institutions and schools.

You Could Say Wine Runs in the Family

Hi wine lovers, Erin here. I’m the Chief Wino and Party Planner at The Wine Sisters. That’s a picture of my sister, Courtney, and me, waaaay back in the beginning of the company, but the story goes much further back than that.

Wine is definitely in our blood thanks to a lifetime of immersion through our Dad. When we were kids, our Dad worked in the wine business as well, and he would travel the wine regions of the world, and return with enchanting tales of the champagne caves in France or the impossibly steep vineyard slopes in Germany.

We like to joke that when all the other kids were learning to ride their bikes, we were learning about fermentation. Except it’s not a joke, that actually happened.

Well, Courtney’s now moved on to other exciting vinous adventures – but don’t worry she still appears on our Instagram from time to time, and continues to be my sounding board for all things related to TWS. And I now have my own “family” of wine sisters – an amazing group of smart, savvy women sommeliers who simply kick ass at entertaining, educating and sharing their love, experience and knowledge of wine.

Since 2011, we’ve been honoured to create incredible experiences for wine lovers across the province and beyond. We’d love for you to become part of our story as well.

Our guests had a great evening and Erin made sure that everyone (even non-drinkers) enjoyed themselves! Thanks for making the bridal shower so memorable!
I wanted to thank you again for last night. Everyone had a great time, and I received a lot of compliments, on your behalf. You struck a great balance between being informational and entertaining. 10 out of 10.
Erin did a fantastic job with our group. We all really enjoyed the day. I have already recommended The Wine Sisters for my company events, as it was such a great experience for us.
You were great and hilarious, and made everyone feel comfortable. Appreciate your time with me and helping pull this event together.
The event was a huge success! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the group was quite engaged. The wine was also delicious! Thank you so much! I hope we can work together on another event in the future!
I’m really pleased with how the event went. Everyone feels really happy with your incredible hosting skills and experience. We all DEFINITELY want to use The Wine Sisters again! Thank you so much!!
I had the pleasure of attending the Oceania Cruise event where you conducted a wine pairing. I have to say that your wine and food pairing made a typically ho hum travel information night, spectacular! I have never done a wine pairing. I was amazed at how food interacted with the wines.
Great energy, sense of humour and very knowledgeable! Thank you for making it an afternoon to remember!
The Wine Sisters are professional and flexible to attend to client needs. They’re able to provide 'one stop shop for events.
The Wine Sisters put on magnificent event in Unionville..... They did a superb job, both as Sommeliers and on the PR and overall event co-ordination ... Great job and we look forward to working with you on our event!
