Wine Shop Manager
Originally from Toronto, Rachel worked as a Family Law Clerk for 20 years. It was in Toronto, while attending an underground wine club, that her passion in wine emerged. These events acted as the catalyst for her ongoing education and sparked the inspiration for her and her partner, Jack to quit their jobs, sell everything they owned, and move west in search of exceptional wine and weather. Along the way, Rachel completed her WSET 3 in Napa Valley and has since gone on to become an expert in Champagne. Rachel joined Hester Creek at the tail end of the Summer 2020 season and quickly became an integral part of the team. In her spare time, Rachel loves laughing, analysing wine, creating cocktails, hiking, and swimming.
