A Terrific Wine Entertainer!

I have often heard that Chuck Byers is happiest when he is recognized not simply as a prolific wine writer and author, but also as a “terrific wine entertainer!” This, indeed, is the Chuck I know, and aptly sums up the passion he shows for his work and how he makes everyone comfortable tasting and talking about wine, whether they are connoisseurs or brand new to the experience. Chuck’s infectious enthusiasm in both his writing and at the many wine tasting events that he hosts, has introduced countless Canadians to the fun of tasting wines at all price points. He is also a tireless promoter of homegrown products and for this, our industry is extremely grateful as he devotes so much time on television, radio, and in the printed word extolling the strengths of our wine-growing regions in Ontario and British Columbia. Chuck is a wonderful teacher and a great friend to the wine industry.
