Emily joined our Warehouse Team in early 2022, signing on to be an Order Desk Associate. Since then, Emily’s role has grown, taking on responsibilities related to our licensee/restaurant side of the business; helping customers across the province get the product that works for them. A Certified Sommelier – Court of Master Sommeliers, Emily has taken part in plentiful wine-related travel, further cementing that passion and desire to keep learning about everything wine.
Favourite grape or wine region?
This is a tough one. I’d have to say Chardonnay- from really, anywhere. But namely: Burgundy, Western Australia, Sonoma Coast & Ontario. But I also really like Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, Nebbiolo, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir.
What’s one thing that people would be shocked to know about you?
I’ve never had a Big Mac in my life. Which is kind of interesting, because I love burgers. But I hear they’re really good.
If you weren’t selling wine at Bishop’s Cellar, what would you be doing?
I think it’d be really fun to be a Sommelier for an F1 Racing Team- if that job exists?! To curate and build out their wine cellars so they have cool and interesting things to drink when they aren’t on the road sounds like a lot of fun.
