Vanya Filipovic

Named Canada’s Best Sommelier for 2018, Vanya Filipovic is credited with nurturing the natural wine craze in Montreal and raising the profile of small producers. Through her wine import business, Les Vins Dame-Jeanne, and work at restaurants Joe Beef, Le Vin Papillon and Mon Lapin, Filipovic influences the drinking habits of thousands of Montrealers each week. In short, Filipovic is the city’s queen of wine.
