Guests will be joined by British Master of Wine, Tim Atkin, American wine expert and talk show host, Robin Stark, Canadian wine expert, DJ Kearney and Australian Master of Wine, Andrea Pritzker.
One of Britain’s leading wine writers and a certified Master of Wine (MW), Tim Atkins was recently named the fifth most influential wine expert in the world. Thirty-three years’ experience and with many awards to his name, he now makes up one third of the ‘Three Wine Men’, hosting engaging wine events around the UK.
Wine consultant, wine show judge, writer and highly regarded speaker, Andrea Pritzker MW has had a varied career within the wine trade. Born and raised in Toronto, Andrea obtained her diploma in Wine Commerce in Bordeaux and in 2015 became a Master of Wine, one of just 369 in the world.

Wine educator, writer and judge, Vancouver-based DJ Kearney has trained hundreds of professional sommeliers on behalf of the Sommelier Guild. Her diverse background within wine, food and geology has qualified her to guide the discovery of the world’s wine regions, as is her understanding of terroir, the sharpening of palates and the chemistry of food and wine in harmony.
Starkland Cellar Services provides wine cellar management consultations to restaurants and collectors countrywide, while Starkland Tours organises group wine-tasting bicycle tours in Tuscany, Provence and Burgundy. Robin’s past experience of public speaking means she’s well-equipped to hold her insightful wine-tastings in Southern California, and is praised for her energetic style.
