Eugene Mlynczyk MW
Eugene Mlynczyk has been in love with wine since his college days in California. After returning home to Toronto in the early 1990s, he began to direct a portion of his modest earnings to local Niagara wines, further nurturing his oenophile passion. Eugene subscribes to the maxim “Carpe Diem” (meaning “sieze the day”), so he began to study wine and sought employment in the wine industry, which began 15 years ago and continues to this day. Another of Eugene’s central beliefs is that no one should ever stop learning, so after completing all WSET course levels through Diploma, Eugene enrolled in the Master of Wine program in 2011. Eugene was thrilled to complete all the program requirements in 2015 and be awarded the “MW” designation: hooray! Besides wine, Eugene focuses on family when not also running in the woods competing in his favourite sport, orienteering.
