Eugene Mlynczyk became a Master of Wine in 2015, and is one of only five in Canada. Eugene’s love of wine began in California while studying at Stanford University and grew after his return home to Toronto, Canada, as local wines from the Niagara region were beginning to really shine. After a few years working in the arts, Eugene launched a new career in the wine trade almost twenty years ago. His current role is Luxury Portfolio Manager at Constellation Brands Canada, where he is responsible for selling a global range of wines to Vintages, the specialty division of the LCBO, and promoting Constellation’s top tier products across the country. When not drinking (and describing) wine, Eugene focuses on teaching, family activities, and can often be found running in the woods doing his favourite sport, orienteering.
