jonny maisieThe Wine Wrangler is Jonny Tyson, father, wine lover, certified Sommelier and WSET Diploma holder experiencing the world of wine.

I am originally from the UK, and lived in London. I now make Vancouver BC, Canada my home. I work in the restaurant business, and have been a buyer for a leading Vancouver speciality wine, craft beer and spirit retailer.

I grew up visiting my grandparents in Panzano-in-Chianti in Tuscany where they grew vines on a beautiful property. They were also at the forefront of planting vines and making wine in Sussex in the 1950’s as part of the very early days of the English wine renaissance, so a love of wine is in the blood!

Points and Stars?

I use the 100 point system as it seems the way things are going with wine criticism but I also use (as on my beer blog) a 5 star rating , although shown here as corkscrews! This equates to:

75-79 points =  canstock13419042    (Poor)

80-84 points = canstock13419042 canstock13419042    (Fair)

85-89 points = canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042   (Recommended)

90-94 points = canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042    (Highly Recommended)

95-100 points = canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042 canstock13419042   (Outstanding)
