Born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario, Steve was introduced to the culture of wine during his university studies as an amateur winemaker. Fascinated by its cultural influence upon Society’s perception of cuisine and drink, Steve’s curious, artistic, mind was fuelled to explore further. From what started as an apprentice cellar hand, Steve's career in the wine industry quickly flourished. An unflinching commitment to quality, combining dedication to sound viticulture practices and a focus on winemaking detail, Steve's talent and humble personality really stood out to our team at Shale Ridge. His passion and attention to detail show through in his work and we are so excited to launch our 2021 Vintages that Steve and our team have been working tirelessly on! Hats off to this extraordinary guy.
