BC VQA Assessor

The BC Wine Authority maintains a group of approximately 24 expertly trained Taste Test Assessors from a variety of backgrounds, including sommeliers, sensory flavourists, fruit winemakers, government and private liquor stores staff, individuals with direct past wine industry involvement, as well as having previous wine training such as the WSET courses or Okanagan College Winery Assistant Certificate or Viticulture programs. Each individual has successfully completed the BCWA four-day sensory fault training workshop and two apprentice sessions. Each Assessor is re-certified every two years. To join this team, please contact Lorrie Zander directly.
