Living proof that doing what you love really is the key to success, Kim let her passion for great wine guide her to the sweet life. With over 10 years in Calgary’s oil and gas industry on her résumé, Kim’s fascination with the grape led her to part-time work at a local wine store, just for fun. Her lust for more knowledge (and tasting experiences) led her to take the first two levels of the International Sommelier Guild program at SAIT. Three years later she took the plunge, left the oil and gas field and opened her own store in order to continue to share her knowledge and passion for extraordinary wines. The Ferocious Grape opened its doors Dec. 1, 2008 and Kim has never looked back—an accomplishment worth raising a glass to!
