Area Representatives

There are 27 chapters across Canada, each with a volunteer called an Area Representative. Area representatives organize tastings and dinners in his or her chapter; they respond to members questions and act as liaisons with liquor store managers to ensure that the delivery process is as smooth as possible. Members should contact their area representative to resolve difficulties such as finding that they have picked up the wrong case of wine or the case contains a broken bottle. As the position of Area Representative is voluntary, please be understanding if your Area Representative cannot respond immediately.
