Tasting Notes

Wendy TastingSommelier and wine connoisseur Wendy Smyth loves tasting and commenting on the wonderful wines you can make at Wine Kitz Ottawa Iris.

Wendy travels extensively, tasting and studying wines throughout North America and Europe.  Because she’s a Wine Kitz Ottawa Iris customer herself, Wendy is in a unique position to compare the wines you make with us to the hundreds of commercial wines she tastes every year.

As she works her way through the many wine collections available at Wine Kitz Ottawa Iris, Wendy’s tasting notes will appear here. So check back often for updates and new reviews.
