Treve Ring is a wine writer and editor for regional, national and international print and digital publications, as well as an international wine judge and speaker. She is based on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, though is most often found on a plane or in a vineyard.
After completing her Art History degree with Distinction from the University of Victoria and being exposed to the world of wine business at Christie’s in London, England, she switched gears, leaving the realm of art for the world of wine. She received her Sommelier Diploma from the International Sommelier Guild, and Diploma from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Along the way she became a French Wine Scholar through the French Wine Academy, a certified Sherry Educator through the Sherry Academy in Jerez, a Wine Location Specialist (Champagne and Port) with the Center of Wine Origins, and has completed the Certified Specialist of Wine program with the Society of Wine Educators.
She is the national managing editor of WineAlign, executive editor at Gismondi On Wine, BC editor for SIP Northwest Magazine and wine editor for Scout Magazine. She is also the Canadian contributor for Meininger’s Wine Business International and international critic and contributor for Quench Magazine as well as a freelance journalist for other wine and travel publications. In addition, Treve is a co-founder of boutique wine firm, Cru Consultancy, a committee member and key judge for the Vancouver International Wine Festival and a contributor and restaurant awards judge for Vancouver Magazine.
Treve was a contributing author of the award-winning book, “Island Wineries of British Columbia“, published in 2011 (revised 2013) and one of the consulting contributors to Maclean’s Wine In Canada annual (2013). She was awarded a fellowship to the Professional Wine Writers Symposium in 2016 for her body of work.
She is currently working her way through visiting every wine growing region worldwide – a seemingly (and fortuitously) endless goal.
