Lynn Abernethy, Past President

Posted by Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers Ontario on

Following a varied career in office administration, events and public relations, Lynn finally put her geography degree to good use by following her "appreciation" of wine and spirits to more formal learning. After successfully completing her Wine Specialist Certificate from George Brown College, Lynn earned her sommelier certificates from the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) and the Court of Master Sommeliers (CMS) as well as her WSET Level 3. She currently works behind the bottle as a pourer for hire for a variety of agencies and Fine Vintage Ltd. She was a co-producer for the 2019 Best Ontario Sommelier Competition (BOSC) and is active in the community. Lynn and her husband split their time between their homes in Toronto and Prince Edward County.
