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 5 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

Frequently in store we play a little game where we test our senses and pick a wine to taste blind. A week ago Jason blinded us on the Tawse Chardonnay from Niagara and I was pleasantly surprised when it was unveiled as I guessed it was a $40 chardonnay from Burgundy, France. So at $22.00 I think this chardonnay is a steal.  With notes of crisp apple, lemon cream, minerality and touch of vanilla oak. The plate was balanced with fruit, oak and bright acidity. This wine was a wonderful surprise and it will now be in my everyday Chardonnay rotation.
