Trained chef, certified wine steward, journalist and now wine director for BC Uncorked; to Chef Kristof it is the story that takes priority… to tell the tale of everyday people accomplishing their dreams.

In the world of wine these tales are both prolific and humbling. It is Kristof’s privilege to have worked with luminaries such as Pierre-Henry Gagey of Maison Jadot, Nik Weis of St Urbans-Hof, Ray Signorello of Signorello Estates and Ezra Cipes of Summerhill Pyramid Winery; true icons in the wine industry. With over twenty years’ experience working with the synergy between food and wine,  Kristof is proud to share the creations from these and other amazing stewards of the land: artisanal wines created with a profound reverence for environment, culture, heritage and family tradition. All great craftspeople strive to showcase the beauty of their terroir and it is this what motivates  Kristof to provide our guests with an outstanding wine experience.
