Somewhat mischievous, but mostly curious, his interest in wine started at a young age when Rob snuck sips of his mother’s jug wine.
After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career behind the scenes in the music and entertainment industry, Rob was fortunate to find himself participating in industry meetings and events where fine wine was an intricate part of the performing atmosphere.
It was then that Rob’s slight interest turned into a love and then quickly into a passion for the creation, appreciation and enjoyment of wine.
Rob holds an Executive Sommelier certification and is a Master Sommelier Candidate.
He spends his time conducting wine tastings, speaking engagements and educational events.
“I am completely fascinated by the history and knowledge of wine and find joy in sharing it with others.” – Rob Mackenzie.
