Kurtis Kolt Co-Founder, Co-Director, Media Relations

This is me! I’m a Vancouver-based freelance wine consultant, presenter and writer who received the Sommelier of the Year award from the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival. I also write the bios here on the site (I drew the short straw), drink plenty of coffee, wine and craft beer, and try to squeeze in a little yoga here and there. Certified by London’s Wine & Spirit Education Trust and having credit in the winemaking program at UC Davis, I’ve done a little bit of everything from being the subject of a Wine Enthusiast Magazine profile and appearing at New York’s James Beard House, to leading wine festival seminars and beyond.
