YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS
Dany, wine professional
40 years of experience and passion at your service! 🤗
My first wine tasting dates back to 1981. Since then, I have toured the wine world; 88 countries, 5 continents, including 6 years in France, until 2011.
My experience and my knowledge as a sommelier, winegrower, winemaker, oenologist and wine merchant, allows you to understand wine more easily as a whole, to better assimilate the tips and tricks that I will reveal to you in your daily life.
If with all my stories, my passion and my knowledge, I fail to impress your guests, you will be refunded. 🥰
A short 3-minute interview that briefly summarizes my background.
The short version! 🤷🏻♂️
Long story short...
Vin and Wine started in 2011, in my kitchen in Montreal. Fresh from France, I had the wines from my cellar tasted, which I had brought with me from Europe.
To the amazement of my neighbors, it was clear that they did not know what wine is. The delicious nectars that I taught them to savor had nothing to do with the wines they were used to.
My initial idea was to be a "private importer". But it is clear that my stories and my knowledge were more exciting than the business model imposed by the state corporation.
So I placed a few advertisements for workshops and wine tastings and it was an immediate success. I hosted 4 to 5 events per week throughout Quebec and Ontario. Sometime 2 on the same day. 🤷🏼♂️
In short, the formula is very popular and today, after more than 900 workshops, it is the "improved" version to which you will be enjoying. 🤗
Vin and Wine has achieved…
Workshops / Events
Quebec & Ontario. Montreal & regions
Participants / Guests
Members of the Vin & Wine Club
Straight from the vineyard.
Since 2012, we have set up a wine delivery service directly from local vineyards, without intermediaries, therefore at advantageous prices for you and the winegrowers.
Participants who so wish can thus receive at home, the wines they have tasted during our workshops and wine tastings.
Your guests will thank you for all the knowledge and experience you have given them.
All Vin and Wine knowledge in your pocket
None of your guests will leave empty-handed. We've packed all the info, for them, into a free and accessible mobile app.
WINE A BEE™ - Our free mobile application
After each of our workshops...
participants often told us:
" Dany, your presentation is very cool; choose your wines better and appreciate them, we're in. Do you simply have a wine list that you can suggest to us? "
Human nature being what it is, in 2017 we invented a mobile application that allows you to know and order the best wines directly from the vineyard, in real time!
You're welcome ! 👍🏼
KNOWLEDGE - APPRECIATION - ENJOYMENT
Finally an app that's worth it! The opportunity to choose a quality wine with precision and finesse is priceless.
"Wine a bee is definitely the best app available to learn more about your own tastes and enjoy quality wine. It helped me discover that good wine can also be affordable!"
"I love this app! As a relatively new wine lover, the app helps me discover good quality wines and keep track of the ones I like and even gives me suggestions for my taste! Great ! "
When will we get the list of ingredients on the bottle of wines?
If you like to eat healthy to stay healthy, it also has to apply to the wines you drink. In our workshops, we guide your guests to wines without headaches or other unwanted side effects.
Until there are ingredient lists on wine bottles, it will be imperative to be aware of your choices.
Awareness that will be greatly appreciated by all your guests. ❤️
As you will see during your wine tasting, the quality of a wine is qualified by 2 factors: the raw material and the skills of the artisan. This is also true for all other products.
With its unique experience, Vin & Wine has developed an algorithm that can prove the quality of a wine with precision. It goes without saying that the wines served during our tastings are quality wines, without headaches or other side effects.
The average price of the wines included in the tasting is $18. We want to prove that the price of a wine is not a factor of quality. If you prefer more complex and crafted wines from a higher price range, we have the VIP option for $20 per guest.
In addition, we buy our wines from the SAQ. Here again, we want to prove the accessibility of the wines that we make you taste.
There is nothing better than the winemaker himself to talk to you about his art, to tell you the story of his wines.
We would all like to have the time to fetch our own wine from the vineyard, take the time to listen to his anecdotes and taste his latest vintages.
What could be more ecological and enriching.
Imagine making it your job, every day, a new Wine Route. 🤗 I had this privilege, not only in France, but also 34 other countries around the world. Time spent with them that allowed me to understand and experience their joys and their pain.
It is this passion that I communicate at each of my evenings, my workshops and tastings.
"WOW! Thank you for bringing our ignorance to light with simplicity, and imparting the best skills with passion. Very interesting, memorable!"
Some of the emotions YOUR guests are likely to feel. 😃
Many of you have expressed your gratitude for our workshops and we are very grateful. This allowed us to adapt our events to your expectations. 🤗
A few words that have been most often used to qualify our work:
Over 50 WOWs , 12 Fantastic , 15 Amazing , 209 Great , 300 Exciting , 100 Liked , 249 Excellent , 14 Awesome , 126 Relevant , 185 Informative , 900 "Very Interesting" and much more....
You are in good company

For us, it's much more than a saying, "to your health" it is our raison d'être.
The " tech wine " drinkers , in other words, the "Ménages à Trois", Fusion and Barefoot of this world, are unknowingly ingesting over 700+ chemicals, used to make these "wines". It's the equivalent of smoking 10 cigarettes a day. Eventually your body adapts to it, but like smoking, it prevents you from living a fully healthy life.
Once informed of the consequences on their health, the vast majority of wine consumers change their purchasing and consumption habits. All it took was an initiative of information, and awareness.
Thanks to you, who are reading these lines, and want an event that will improve the wine habits of their guests for the rest of their lives.
