Are your slippers too comfy to take off to go out for the night? Want to explore the Okanagan without leaving your home? Or would you rather compare Riesling from around the world? Too cold for whites, then lets pit Pinot Noir against each other. Plan your at home tour with Wine You Way Home!

With over 1,000,000 labels in the world the possibilities are truly endless! But, as our name, Wine Your Way Home, suggests we want your evening to be perfect, the way you want it to be. We have pre-designed tours for you to choose from or you can create your own perfect evening.

How Does Wine Your Way Home Work?

Wine Your Way Home will come into your home, rental property or corporate event for an evening of great wine, wonderful food and fun education. As a certified sommelier let me show you how stemware is important, how to identify a fault in a wine, the science behind food and wine pairing and most importantly how much fun wine can truly be.

Hello, My Name Is Shalyn

Let me introduce myself, my name is Shalyn. I have worked in the service industry since 1995 in Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, Alberta and now British Columbia. My family and I moved here so I could pursue my true passion, wine. I will admit I sometimes love it a little more than I do my husband! Just like the moment I fell in love with him, I can tell you the exact moment I fell in love with wine. After realizing that it wasn’t a passing love, I decided to pursue becoming a Sommelier, I received my designation through the International Sommelier Guild in 2011. My goal is to have fun while we learn about the many sub regions within the Okanagan and that when we are done you too will see how amazing and intriguing wine truly is.

Certified Sommelier

Becoming a Sommelier is not just drinking a lot of wine! I received my designation through the International Sommelier Guild, completing all three levels of the offered program. One day I would love to become one of their instructors, as I can’t think of anything better than continuing sharing my love of wine with anyone that will listen!

Becoming a Sommelier is not all fun, there is a lot of preparation needed and even more studying. I would say that for every hour spent in the classroom another two were spent at home reading. I will admit that the amount of wines I was able to try made studying and learning a little more enjoyable!

Learning about wine is so addicting, there is so much to learn and it is forever changing. I would also like to pursue getting a second designation through WSET, Wine and Spirit Education Trust. I am proud to say that as of March 2013, I am on my way. I now hold the WSET Advanced certification!

The Intro

A basic overview of food and wine pairings.

This will give you the confidence you need to walk into your local wine store and choose a wine! We will enjoy between 4 and 6 appetizers with 2 white and 2 red wines. Experimenting with what works, and what doesn't.

Land, Sea and Pinot

4 different Pinot Noir from around the globe to show how not all Pinots are created equal.

We will pit Burgandy against the Okanagan and Oregon to see how they have unique characteristics. We will enjoy between 3 and 5 small entrees to find the perfect pairings.

BIG Reds

Does pairing a meal scare you just a little, especially when there is more than one course?

Wine pairing doesn't have to be scary! What if I told you that one wine is all you need? Maybe sparkling wine is always a great start to any evening. This package will show you how diverse big wines are when paired correctly. We will enjoy a 3 course evening with 2 different reds from 2 different regions. Both perfectly paired.

Intimidating Wines

You know the wines, Gerwurtztraminer, Gruner Veltliner, Montepulciano, Merlot...

Scared to order wines you don't know how to pronounce? Okay we know Merlot is not hard to say, but thanks to a certain movie some may have a problem enjoying it! Does this prevent you from buying and enjoying them? Conquer this fear and learn how to pronounce and pair.

Dealers Choice

Design your own night in!

Let me work with your vision of the perfect evening in and I will help you design it. Whether you are having a pot luck dinner, you are an amazing chef and need some help pairing or the packages are just not hitting the mark. Send me your menu and I will pair it and explain why I chose the wines.
