On February 8th, 2020 we featured sommelier Mireille Sauvé at our first official Storybook Wine Club Event!
Mireille is one of Canada’s most acclaimed Wine Professionals, and the founder of Vancouver’s most established wine industry consulting firm, The Wine Umbrella.
A 30-year veteran of the wine and restaurant industries, Mireille graduated with honours from George Brown College’s Sommelier Program, earning her the title of ‘Canada’s Youngest Sommelier’ in August of 1997. Throughout her career, she has completed a Winemaking Apprenticeship (Hedges Cellars in Washington State, USA), earned multiple gold medals for her restaurant wine programs, and established Western Canada’s first Wine Australia office.
Ms. Sauvé founded The Wine Umbrella consulting company in 2005 with many international and local clients in addition to wine writing for various publications and featuring regularly as Wine Expert on radio and TV.
She holds many professional certifications as a wine educator and her latest project is to direct and hold the position of Winemaker for The Wine Umbrella wines – a fundraising initiative that raises money for British Columbian women's education in the Food & Beverage fields.
