Hi, I’m Samantha!
I was introduced to the world of wine through coincidence. What started as an event planning job, turned into a thirst and yearning for knowledge. The study of wine has not only become my biggest passion, it has led me to create a company based on spreading my love and knowledge of wine with others.
From the beginning, wine tasting has never been about the pretension, sophistication or dollar value. Instead, what started as an interest, turned into knowledge, which soon turned into an inspiration to share that knowledge with others.
I understand the intimidation and how daunting it can be walking into the LCBO with no clue on what to buy and how much to spend. I sympathize about the confusing jargon and stigma that others might view as uninviting, as I have been there myself.
I wanted to pass along the warm welcome I had received when starting my wine journey. This led me to start the Liberty Village Wine Club as a way of meeting neighbours and making friends in a new community. It soon turned into a 450+ member wine club and a realization that wine tasting could be so much more than just drinking wine. This network was a way for people to build connections, become more educated and gain memorable experiences that would provide them with real value.
This epiphany was the inspiration for Vine & Vintage.
Now, you can find V&V at your next corporate team building session, your best friends bachelorette party or your upcoming ladies night.
We do all the prep work to provide an original and unforgettable event. Your only focus is to sit back and enjoy the experience with those around you, while we take care of the rest.
We look forward to spending a fun-filled, memorable event, sipping wine with you soon,
