Steve Doyle - Pazzo Company Wine Director

Born and raised in Stratford, Steve graduated from the Stratford Chef school with Honours in 2003. While working as a chef at Bijou and studying with friends completing their Sommelier designations, Steve realized that wine was the vocation that called to him. Travelling to the most storied houses of Barolo and Barbaresco was a highlight in his career, and Steve loves to share his vast knowledge and passion for wine with his guests. Steve is really inspired by the evolving ethos of small batch wineries that have prioritized sustainable practices from the farm to the employee culture. He notes how “this results in a better product every time” and is excited for the continued pivot back to smaller wineries.

Steve is excited to take you on a tour of Bordeaux, one of his favourite regions!
