Kathryn Harding

Sommelier and Retail Manager

When you step into our retail store, there is a pretty good chance you’ll find Kathryn creating amazing wine experiences for our Bishop’s Cellar customers. As retail manager, her day-to-day work includes providing wine education, developing pairings, planning for the store’s future, and planning upcoming wine tastings.

Kathryn became interested in wine while she was working in the restaurant and bar industry during university. After a trip to Australia and exploring more wines abroad, she decided to enroll in the sommelier program. With more than 10 years at Bishop’s Cellar, Kathryn loves that she’s still meeting new people and constantly learning new things about wine.

Beyond the store, Kathryn enjoys spending time with her friends and family while pursuing her second passion of staying fit and healthy.

Certifications: Kathryn is a CAPS-certified sommelier and holds her WSET Level 3 award.

Kathryn Harding's Picks

The late vigneron Marcel Lapierre was a member of the Gang of Four, a group of Beaujolais producers who made it their mandate to maintain the viticultural and winemaking traditions of Beaujolais and arguably started the natural wine movement. 

This Beaujolais from the cru Morgon is one of my absolute favourite wines. Made from 70 year old vines the wine is plush and velvety, every sip is even better than the one before. The aromas of red fruit, spice and floral notes jump from the glass. Drinks like a Burgundian Pinot Noir with more forward fruit and softer tannins. In years past Bishop’s has only ever received a few cases, luckily we got double the amount this year so I haven’t had to save it for a special occasion and have already enjoyed a few bottles. Try it and I bet you will be back for a second bottle!
