Christopher sealy.

Professionally and in brief I am:

A graduate of French Language and Literature Degree from University of Toronto. 

I am a certified Sommelier in the Court of Master Sommeliers adding to my initial certification with CAPS Ontario (Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers). In the last 10 years I have had the great privilege of travelling to numerous wine regions, exploring and studying different wine cultures, the people and the factors that make them unique. I continue to expand on my global understanding of wine. 

In rather short period of time and on different projects, I have been involved in all aspects of 'restaurant management'...with exception of the kitchen. I have been instrumental in the building of full wine and beverage programs, to being a General Manager, to teaching wine education, to building and opening my own wine bar & tavern and most recently working in one of Canada's top fine dining restaurants. 

Mercatto, Bar Mercurio, Terroni, Midfield Wine Bar, George Brown College, Buca, George Restaurant, and currently the wine director for Alo Restaurant and Aloette.
