Since March of 2011, David Pelletier sees to the destiny of the lesommelierfou.com site. First and foremost an author, he decided to teach himself the discipline associated with the writing craft by (innocently) starting a wine blog, a topic he finds fascinating. Now, he’s stuck with it.
David drinks wine at your expense so as to critique it. He makes the deliberate choice of not rating the wines he tastes. He is a teacher by trade, and therefore there are damn limits to marking everything he touches.
His passion for wine started in the same fashion as for many people: through a damn Frenchman. He made him discover the splendours of cellared wine, and David never looked back since. In fact, him and the Frenchie don’t talk to each other anymore.
David currently studies to get his Level 4 Diploma from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). you wonder how he finds the time to do it all? Him, too.
And as if this wasn’t enough, David also writes for serious publications, such as Vins & Vignobles, SAQ Cellier or Wine & Spirits Magazine.
