Tyler is the President of the Wine Writers' Circle of Canada.

"Discovery and understanding, account for only a portion of the pleasures that I derive from wine. To impart knowledge and share this incredible subject with others, in a way that will make them feel welcome, is my vinous quest."

Beyond choosing the perfect wine to pair with dinner, the etiquette involved and service of a well-aged bottle is the focus of Tyler's attention. His infatuation for fine wine is based on the idea that you can amass a collection, monitor its progress, and withdrawal a product that has the potential to improve exponentially with time. Educating the public on the need for proper wine storage with an emphasis on understanding passive and active cellaring techniques has become his mission.

Tyler is a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. He is the wine writer for The Regional Media Group which includes a monthly column in Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga, and Brampton's online newspapers. Additionally Tyler is featured in Simcoe-York Publishing's quarterly Footprints and Tapestry magazines. He is the host of the #TOwinedinner in Toronto and an influential wine voice online.

In 2009 Tyler founded www.tylerphilp.com, a free online education resource and tasting group where he hosts regular pairing dinners and tutored tasting sessions with a focus on pleasure without pretension.
