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.

Up next on this week’s audio podcast we welcome just awarded the 2017 Niagara Lifetime Achievement Award, President and Co-Founder Cave Spring Cellars, Len Pennachetti. Although much too young for this honour it however shows what he has accomplished and given to the area.
Cave Spring Cellars goes back multiple generations starting with Len’s grand-dad Giuseppe Pennachetti. He came to Canada from Fermo, Italy. At that time he followed his love of wine and in time planted the native Labrusca grape. He however knew much more was possible!
Cave Spring Cellars is known for being among the first to plant the vitas vinifera grapes Riesling and Chardonnay. The vineyards are situated on one of the finest slopes of the Beamsville Bench. Len and his father founded Cave Spring Cellars in 1974 and planted these noble grapes in 1978.
Believing in the marriage of wine, food and hospitality, Len together with his wife Helen Young expanded the company to include On The Twenty Restaurant in 1993. In 1996 they and later added accommodations to the equation with building of Inn On The Twenty.
