What they Say…

“Two years ago, weary of the winter blues, I decided to host a wine tasting party at my home to welcome spring. Our guide of the evening was Renée Delorme, a Bragg Creek sommelier who had recently completed her Sommelier certificate with the International Sommelier Guild. Renée led us on a journey of discovery of red wines with a low tannin content (my favorite), educating us on how to distinguish the different flavours of the wine, how to discern their aromas and which foods to paring them with. Renée displayed a great depth of knowledge and answered our questions with humour and enthusiasm, displaying her obvious enjoyment land love of wines. In the end, my friends and I all agreed that this was a most entertaining and civilized way to welcome spring.”

Maria Crooks, Calgary                                                                           

“I have used Renée’s Sommelier services numerous times and have always been very impressed with her extensive knowledge of wine and her gift for making participants feel at ease in the complex world of wine tasting - she is without a doubt a master host who truly understands how intimidating wine selection can be for most of us!”

Eliane Rojas, Calgary


“Renée so graciously attended a recent fundraiser for the Little Schoolhouse in Bragg Creek.  Her private wine tasting was extremely well received and ended up being the highlight of the evening.  Renee proved to have expert knowledge of the wines and their origins and the participants thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. I will be keeping Renée in mind for any future wine events, whether large or small."      

Kristyn Schmidt, Bragg Creek

“We had come across Tasting Pleasures on several occasions, including at an Italian food and wines pairing event and the at the “Taste of Bragg Creek” culinary show before we decided to resort to the services of the company’s founder sommelier Renée Delorme.  Her seasoned expertise in wine and spirits, her contagious enthusiasm, as well as her ability to advise clients in both English and French alike were key elements in our decision to select Tasting Pleasures for our private wine tasting event. And it proved right!  the event was a success, with participants delighted to be introduced to less common wines and in a very friendly yet professional manner”.

Sylviane Bachy, Calgary


“Your wine French classes were such a wonderful adventure! I learned about France, about wine, and about how to talk about wines. Fun, informative and accessible. Thanks for a great four weeks!”
