Tiffany has spent the past fifteen years honing her skills in Toronto restaurants. As General Manager and Wine Director for CRUSH Wine Bar + Kitchen, a mainstay of the Toronto wine world since 2002, she had the good fortune to manage a 600-label cellar and one of the most extensive by the glass programs in the city. This position afforded Tiffany the chance to explore her wine knowledge with staff and guests alike, as well as encourage guests to step out of their comfort zone and be daring and playful in their wine selections. Tiffany is a strong believer in Canada’s proven potential to produce world class wines from coast to coast, and enjoys exploring our local wineries whenever she has the chance! She is also fascinated by lesser known indigenous varietals from around the world, and wine producers using sustainable, biodynamic and organic methods.Tiffany loves wines that are representative of their regions, and believes that the best wines tell a story of the place and people that made them.
