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

Alexis Duchet is the seventh generation to work his family’s land in the Macon region of Burgundy. This organically farmed chardonnay is a go-to of mine. There is no oak treatment on this wine but the weight of the chardonnay grape, the malolactic fermentation process which results in a softer mouth feel and the time it  in spends in contact with the lees (which are the leftover yeast particles) all contribute to the weight and creamy mouthfeel of this wine. The texture balances perfectly with ripe fruit flavours and bright acidity. I frequently enjoy this on its own or as a pairing for chicken, salmon or a cheese plate. Enjoy!
