WineDiva: 15 Years Later

In early 2004, after sharing a couple of bottles of wine (of course), I declared I wanted to start a website.
I had never heard of a blog, and my knowledge of the internet was limited to accessing my email--even doing that I often needed help.
I would call the site, WineDiva.

So much has happened over the past 15 years since I made that decision and I cannot imagine my life differently. Along the way I've had great support from the industry and count myself blessed, not only for my career, but the people around the world, whom I've shared a glass of wine with (or more) since.

Here are 15 wines I celebrate, they are not necessarily the top scoring wines I've tasted in the past year (although I've scored them all impressively), but wines I want to drink more of.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
