DJ Kearney is a Vancouver-based wine educator, wine writer, judge, presenter and classically trained chef. She has trained hundreds of professional Sommeliers for the International Sommelier Guild during a decade as a non-stop travelling instructor throughout western North America.

A diverse background in wine, food and geology makes DJ uniquely qualified to guide the discovery of the world’s wine regions, the understanding of terroir, the sharpening of palates, and the chemistry of food and wine harmony.

DJ is a contributing editor to Vancouver Magazine and has written for Western Living, Eat Magazine, and for Wine Access until its demise. She appears on radio and television regularly; moderates and presents at wine festivals throughout North America and judges several major wine competitions annually. She is the Chief Judge of the prestigious Vancouver Magazine International Wine Competition, now in its 10th year. She consults for a small client list assisting with wine selections, lists and training. DJ holds the WSET Diploma, the ISG Sommelier Diploma and is in the Master of Wine program as an exam-ready candidate.

Firmly believing in the benefits of wine and health, DJ is a distance runner, a black belt in Tae Kwon Do as well as a mother of twin black belts. DJ takes to heart the dictum of the late great Julia Child: moderation, and plenty of it.
