Cheata Nao is WSET® Certified and has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of British Columbia in Classical Studies.
Cheata’s love of wine began while working at the Kitsilano Wine Cellar for 5 years, a wine shop in Vancouver specializing in the unique, old world wines. It was here she completely fell in love with Old World Style wines: the funkier the better!
After working her way up to manager and buyer at Everything Wine More for the past 6 years it was time to move onto a new challenge and learn the Winery side of the business. This past summer she began working as the Retail and Experience Manager at Black Hills Estate Winery in the Okanagan Valley.
