Erin grew up in the Okanagan and, after a career in architectural design that took her to Calgary and to the UK for several years, she decided to move back to the Valley in 2009 to pursue her passion for wine. Since then. Erin has spent time in most facets of the industry: the cellar, vineyard, tasting room, outside sales, marketing, social media, communications, and management. In 2017 she received her Wine Business Management Certificate from Sonoma State University Wine Business Institute, in order to better prepare for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 4 Diploma, which she completed in 2022. Erin has been a wine educator for 10 years with Okanagan College and is a member of several industry boards and committees. She is the General Manager for Synchromesh Wines, in Okanagan Falls, and Terravista Vineyards, on the Naramata Bench. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking with her rescue dog, Molly, and spending time with friends on local patios.
