Nicole was first introduced to the world of great wine by one of her mentors over a decade ago while working as a contemporary artist in her home town of Vancouver. It wasn’t until after completing a Master’s degree in sculpture at NSCAD here in Halifax that she began to fully commit to wine professionally. Nicole completed the CAPS program while working at The Agricola Street Brasserie, eventually taking over their wine list in addition to consulting on other wine lists in town. She currently manages Little Oak, a wine-focused bar in Bishop’s Landing, working to expand the horizon of possibilities for wines being served in Nova Scotia.
