Eberhard Tamm

Eberhard Tamm

Founder/Owner

A successful import agent, export director, and marketing manager, Tamm has developed an intimate knowledge of his winemakers and their wines. Tamm was raised in Germany, and travels between Canada and Europe, frequently discovering new wines.

Tamm is very much the profile of a wine Enthusiast. He enjoys what most describe as old world wine. The Enthusiast finds pleasure in learning a product’s origins: the roots, terroir, and especially its story — all of which are best shared with friends.

Satya Das

Satya Das

Strategic Advisor

Das finds his experience as a restauranteur, food writer, restaurant reviewer frequently assisting his work with Enotri. Working as the wine columnist for the Edmonton Journal, Das encountered Tamm, and the two joined their collective experience together to form Enotri.

Das fits the bill of a Classic Connoisseur. These wine aficionados have a traditional approach — they try the famous vineyards, they know how to taste a wine, and they select clear favourites. Traditional winemaking techniques are the most attractive, and the Connoisseur collects ideal choices, shelving them so they may age to perfection.

Valerie Albrecht

Valerie Albrecht

Account Manager, Northern Alberta

Albrecht grew up with roots to the old world via her parents, who instilled the appreciation of food grown and harvested by one’s hands while respecting the soil. Her experience in sales in the wine industry, combined with visits to wineries in Italy and Spain has allowed her to expand her knowledge and share her passion with others.

Like Tamm, Albrecht is a wine Enthusiast, one who enjoys wine of every country and creed. To the Enthusiast, the taste of the wine is as interesting as its origin and terroir, and its flavour and stories are best shared with friends.

Ashley Fisher

Ashley Fisher

Social Media/ Marketing

Fisher has worked marketing and communications for the past 10 years, with an emphasis on branding and social media. Her passion for wine spans the globe, and she enjoys discovering interesting and unique wines.

Ashley would fit the profile of the Adventurer. The Adventurer does not like to be tied down by convention, is very open minded and also eager to find out about the world of wine. Adventurers are willing to try new wines from all parts of the world and have not yet determined a clear favourite type or style. This does not mean that they do not appreciate quality – the wine has to be of excellent character to keep them coming back, and to store the wine in their memory, for future occasions.

Jackie Hickson

Jackie Hickson

Special Events Manager, Calgary

Hickson comes to Enotri with years of experience developing a lifestyle brand to include fashion, travel, and  exceptional wines.  She has taken her passion for the finer things in life and turned it into a thriving business.

Jackie fits the profile of an Entertainer, one who approaches wine without any preconceived ideas about what one “should” drink. What’s important to Entertainers is that the wine is of good quality and good taste. Not fussy in the least, the Entertainer enjoys versatile, easy drinking wines best enjoyed with friends.
