We are avid lovers of both travel and wine. Between us we have visited more than 80 countries and tasted wines from across the globe.
AdVINEtures will share the stories of our travels and the wines we enjoy along the way. In this blog, we hope to bring alive the excitement we feel when visiting fascinating places through telling our stories and showing photos and videos. We will tell you about the wines we encounter with a background about the region, the grapes, tasting notes, and the people who make the wine.
Allison is the VP, Communications & CSR for the Flight Centre Travel Group (www.flightcentre.ca), a regular travel contributor for CTV , and a published author and photographer. Chris is a former Private Equity Fund Manager and is a published author on www.seekingalpha.com & www.Investedcentral.com. Both have attained WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Level 2 certificates, along with Canadian Wine Scholar designations (CWS). In 2018, AdVINEtures was named a finalist for the Millesima Blog Awards.
We hope you will enjoy reading about our AdVINEtures as much as we enjoy living them.
