He then joined a premier Ontario import agency. In 2016 he started his own agency, based on his love of Sherry and Spanish wine. Derek holds the WSET Diploma. Other credentials include ‘Official Sherry Educator' (Consejo Regulador DO Sherry), Spanish Wine Educator, French Wine Scholar, Bordeaux Master Certificate. The wines in our portfolio are all personal favourites and made by friends who share a common passion.
