Nicole is a Vancouver based wine consultant and owner of Social Sips. Founded in 2015 and offering a wide array of wine services, Social Sips allows for oenophiles to either start or continue their educational wine journey in a comfortable, approachable and unique way. From guided corporate wine tastings to casual wine tasting parties to 1 on 1 personal cellar shopping experiences or restaurant consulting and trade seminars, Nicole prides herself in reminding people that wine doesn’t have to be intimidating. It’s fun, interesting and a transport into other cultures. Whether it's a Malbec from Argentina, a Shiraz from Australia or a blend from the South of France, every wine has a story. Those are the stories that bring people together and give them memories to last a lifetime.

When not writing, reading or researching about wine, Nicole is busy being a mom to twins and enjoys running and listening to podcasts.
