J.wines: Helping you discover the wines you love.
WHO/WHAT: Janice Kanters-McTaggart is the founder of J.wines, and this is her story:
I was “born in the USA” and have lived in the Netherlands since 1984. I am fully fluent in both Dutch and English. I have always enjoyed a good meal and one of the first things I fell in love with in Europe/The Netherlands was the “Culinary Culture”: Dining with good food and wine, family/friends and taking the time to enjoy it all. After quite a few years working fulltime at various marketing management jobs for multinationals, I decided to switch gears and do something I really love.
I love wine; the taste of it, the story behind it and how it brings people (and food) together.
I wanted to discover more about wine, so I studied at the Dutch Wine Academy and earned my Sommelier’s diploma in 2007. I really wanted to “work” with wine (and food), so started my own company, J.wines, in 2008. At J.wines I help people discover the wines they love by offering the following:
- Spring and Fall WineTastings – The best in Rotterdam!
- Masterclasses: Culinary Wine and Food Pairings, Cheese and Wine, Discover Your Favorite Wine
- Private Dining in the Wine Studio – Restaurant-style dining with wine/food pairings
- Wine Advice – Wine and Food Pairings, Wine Cellar Management and Restaurant Wine Lists
WHERE: J.wines Wine Studio is nestled in our spacious garden with large terrace and veranda on the picturesque Ringvaartweg in Rotterdam-Prinsenland, just minutes from Rotterdam city center.
