Jeff Osborne is a Toronto-based sommelier and wine business professional.  With several years of restaurant and hotel food and beverage management experience across 4 countries Jeff found his true calling while studying WSET with Dr. Lee at Vinoscenti / BC Wine School in Vancouver.  Now based in Toronto and with a sommelier designation under his belt, Jeff works on the wine agency side focused on sales and distribution of premium wine to restaurants, hotels, and private customers while also finding time to occasionally sommelier on the side.

A recent highlight in Jeff’s career was being brought on to curate all the wine content for RC Show 2020, Canada’s largest hospitality trade show.  Jeff curated and executed a Sommelier Service competition judged by local master Sommeliers with a $3,000 prize for the champ, led a panel of 3 winemakers on the topic of organic, biodynamic and natural wine and orchestrated a 3 day “walk around tasting” inclusive of 18 wine agencies / wineries.  When not selling or talking about wine, Jeff and his partner Madi love eating and adventuring their way through major cities and off-the-beaten-track destinations.  Visit Jeff on Instagram at @jeffosborne_
