My name is Jacky Blisson (née Cole). I am a bilingual (English/French) wine writer and educator, in the final phase of studies for the Master of Wine title. After a 10-year sojourn in France studying and selling the wines of Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, I am back in my hometown of Montréal with a dapper French oenologist husband and two rowdy wee boys in tow. My modest winemaking experience includes harvest seasons in Burgundy and the Walker Bay, South Africa.
My passions in life are wine, food, travel and (according to my family) talking – hence the blog. I hope to share my adventures in wine tasting, travel and education with you through regular wine and restaurant reviews and varied blog articles.
While I write in English, I am fluent in French, and entirely comfortable working in either language.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments. I’d love to hear from you.
