Meet The Cannabis Sommelier, Andrew Freedman. Pairing wine and cannabis… really?

National Rosé Day celebrates the delight and versatility of one of the oldest wines in the world dating back over 2600 years!

The Cannabis Sommelier

Meet The Cannabis Sommelier, Andrew Freedman. Pairing wine and cannabis… really?

Andrew’s expertise in pairing cannabis, craft beer, cocktails and wine creates a one of a kind craft cannabis culinary experience that excites and tantalizes the taste buds. You can be sure that you have never experienced fine dining like The Cannabis Sommelier presents.

Andrew worked in the cannabis trade for over a decade. Noticing that there was a lack of scientific language for describing cannabis he became very interested in blind tasting wine. 

His expertise in growing and extracting cannabis led to a passion in viticulture and oenology.  He soon found himself living on a vineyard working as a cellar hand at an estate winery. While honing his palate he became a WSET 3 and Canadian wine scholar.

Andrews passion for cannabis and wine led him to begin teaching what he had learned and created “The Cannabis Sommelier” YouTube channel which currently features new content every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
