Lindsey Ail

Marquis Wine Club Director & BC Wine Buyer
Driven by equal parts passion and a desire to learn, Lindsey joined the Marquis team in 2017 after a decade as a practicing RMT. Her intention is to share her love of exploration and appreciation of the world through wine. Lindsey has completed the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 3 Certificate and continues her wine education be it in books, online, or the much preferred hands-on approach. Outside of work Lindsey derives pleasure from reading, escaping into nature, and the daily adventures with her labradoodle, Maisy.

He has traveled extensively throughout California, Washington Oregon, Australia, Austria, Italy, Bordeaux, burgundy Chablis, Languedoc Rhone Valley, Alsace and of course, BC. A fixture in the Vancouver wine scene for over 30 years, his enthusiasm and energy is unsurpassed.
