Like many wine professionals, Marlene stumbled into the wine business “backwards through the side door”. 

Initially, Marlene studied journalism then subsequently embarked on a less-than-lucrative free-lance writing career.  To make ends meet, she waited tables in some of Edmonton’s finer establishments.  Along the way, Marlene fell in love with food and wine. 

Twenty-years and a few certifications with the International Sommelier Guild and WSET later, Marlene feels very lucky to be selling beautiful wines for Trialto Wine Group. 

Important fact:  Marlene still believes that the great Canadian novel lurks within her; it’s Just buried deep, down inside.  For now.
