I am an Atlantic Canadian based Sommelier and writer who conducts wine tastings, wine and food pairing events and classes, as well as beer and spirits tastings, events and classes. I also judge competitions, and provide training and consulting to the industry. I have designed wine lists and facilitated training sessions for restaurants in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and I regularly travel across Canada and around the world for events and competitions, and to learn. I am available for public and private events.

I grew up and went to school in the Halifax area and still spend a lot of time there (in bars, restos, visiting family, drinking wine and beer, etc.) but I live in Rothesay, New Brunswick, just outside of Saint John. I also travel to Fredericton, Moncton, Charlottetown, Caraquet, Wolfville, Lunenburg, Woodstock, Florenceville, Shediac and elsewhere in the Maritimes for events.

Craig is a frequent Judge at the WineAlign National Wine Awards and the World Wine Awards of Canada. His reviews from those events are posted here.
