“If you’re ever in need of a host for a successful wine tasting event, Ted is your guy! Ted picked an excellent variety of Canadian and international wines for our tasting and could tell lots about them, all nicely attuned to the various levels of understanding of our guests.

We had such a fun, entertaining and informative evening that we can’t wait to have Ted over again soon.” - Arnaud
