Moira Peters

Moira cut her teeth on the New York wine industry, receiving Captain Sommelier certification on Long Island from the Sommelier Society of America in 2007. After moving back to Nova Scotia, she started Unwined, a wine workshop and tasting party business, and worked for a year at Cape Breton's first commercial winery, Eileanan Brèagha Vineyards. She now writes Moira's Glass Act, a weekend wine column with Local Xpress, and tends a child and chickens in Maitland, Nova Scotia.
