Kathleen Mackinnon - Vine Stylist & Craft Beverage Manager

A longtime wine enthusiast, Kathleen began her journey in formal wine education when she completed her WSET Level 2 in 2018. In addition to wine, she has spent the last few years becoming more acquainted with the vibrant Alberta craft beer scene, and is always on the hunt for new releases. Kathleen is always available to assist with finding the perfect wine pairing, catch you up on the latest in craft beer, or recommend a podcast.

Jean-Sébastien (J-S) Rioux - Experience Designer & Wine Dad

J-S has loved wine for as long as he can remember. He obtained his WSET Level 3 and French Wine Professional certifications a few years ago, and is currently studying for the WSET level 4 Diploma. He has visited wineries in about a dozen countries, and particularly loves French wines. J-S is married with three daughters, and when he is not driving them to their activities and play dates, he loves to write: he began his JS the Wine Dad blog in 2022 and hopes to improve it over time, but got sidetracked with writing a novel, a crime thriller titled “Death Followed Us Home” that was recently published and is getting great reviews! (You can purchase it on Amazon, or directly from the publisher: visit to see all the options). Come and say hello to J-S, and maybe sign up for Wine Wednesday With Wine Dad tastings on the first Wednesday of every month!
