Ravin For Ravenswood

It’s all about big, bold Zinfandel wines in this detailed Wine 101 session with Ravenswood. Ravenswood helped relaunch Zinfandel in California – the big, red stuff, not the wimpy “white” version! Hear (and taste) all about it with Eugene Mlynczyk, Master of Wine, one of only five in Canada. Eugene will tell the story of Zin through four hand-selected Ravenswood wines including one of their top-gun single vineyard bottlings, matched with several cheeses courtesy of our friends at the Cheese Boutique.

 

Eugene Mlynczyk’s love of wine began in California while studying at Stanford University in the 1980s, where he earned his BA in Painting and Drawing (and later his MFA in Painting at Indiana University). Eugene’s interest in wine grew after his return home to Toronto, Canada, with a focus on the local Niagara region. Eugene started studying wine in earnest in the late 1990s and launched a new career in the wine trade in 2001 as he also completed his WSET Diploma.

His current role is Luxury Portfolio Manager atConstellation Brands, where he is responsible for selling a global range of wines to Vintages, the specialty division of the LCBO, and actively supporting Luxury Wine sales across the country. With the support of many, Eugene became a Master of Wine in 2015, one of only five in Canada. His Research Paper topic was on local VQA Sparkling Wines. When not tasting and talking about wine, Eugene focuses on family activities, and can often be found running in the woods competing in his favourite sport, orienteering.
