Jean Taylor

DipWSET, CWS, Store Manager for Calgary Co-op Wine Spirits Beer

My career began 12.5 years ago in a Canmore Liquor Store as a part-time clerk. My first tour of Okanagan Wine Country in 2011, ignited my passion for wine and motivated me to become a loud, devoted advocate for Canadian wine, particularly BC VQA. Fast forward to today, every store I manage for Co-op becomes a hub for BC VQA Wines, and I proudly wear the unofficial title of Canadian Wine Authority for Calgary Co-op.
